Our introductory programming course for those with no coding experience. This course teaches you the fundamentals of the “C” programming language – an industry standard. It is a good foundation to build your coding experience on. You will also learn some basic electronics and about interfacing sensors and other transducers to a computer.
The Arduino is a small “stand alone” computer which is also an excellent “invention machine” for creating business ideas which could lead to the creation of your own company.
Participants will have to buy some materials for their own use costing about £10- £15 (all available online), there is no course fee and will get a college certificate upon completion of the course. This is the first in a series of online courses run from the Innovation Centre at Lews Castle College UHI. Participants can progress from this course to a course on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and from there on to a variety of other computing courses in the field of AI and robotics.
