Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • apply model based construction and analysis of embedded systems, especially the software.
  • use current techniques and tools, e.g. Simulink and MATLAB to develop embedded software.
  • work i teams through the entire development cycle, from system specification to constructing a prototype and system implementation.


Computational models for parallel systems, heterogeneous embedded systems, prototyping including model construction and code generation, gathering and judging different construction possibilities, simulation, verification, and testing of embedded systems, and UML-diagram and use of Simulink.


Lectures, lessons, assignments, labs and project.


Oral exam and written assignments (7 credits). Practical assignments and demonstration of project (3 credits).

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
