In this course, you’ll be introduced to programming and will learn the C programming language. This is a widely supported language, which has influenced many other languages. Your knowledge of C and key programming concepts covered in this course can be applied to many other programming languages.
This course covers how to get data in and out of C programs, how we control which parts of the program run, and how we can store and access data in memory. You’ll also cover programming the Arduino, which is a low cost board that runs C code and allows the code to interact with circuits.
UniSA Online’s 10-week short courses give you the flexibility to upskill in a certain area, stay current with developments in your field, diversify your knowledge, or even explore a new direction in your career – without having to commit to the time and cost of a full university degree.
Delivered 100% online, you’ll be able to study where and when it suits you. Access online academic and student support seven days a week, fit study around work and life commitments, view learning resources 24/7, and log in to the interactive online environment anywhere, any time and on any device.
This is a second-year course from UniSA Online’s Associate Degree in Engineering.
Should your course have an exam it will be scheduled for Australian Central Standard Time or Australian Central Daylight Time, depending on the time of the year.
