The first of two projects in the works is a debugger project where the students are learning to work on inter-disciplinary teams and are applying their current skills to a new domain. This project requires them to create a layer that allows hardware to talk effectively with an Eclipse debugger. This project is almost complete and MicroChip has been very pleased with the students’ work for them.
The second project was a request from MicroChip for UAT students to build a two-day training course on C++ for embedded systems development. So far every project that has emerged from MircoChip matches the resources and skills UAT students and faculty can provide.
UAT is thrilled to be in a partnership with the reputable MicroChip as they have provided professional mentorship to the students working on the projects and have sponsored faculty development training.
