Today, there exists a changing paradigm for every organization towards Digital Transformation in alignment with rapid growth of Industrial Automation. As automation impacts the business-returns directly, every organization, be it Designing, Manufacturing, Assembling or Logistics sector, sincerely is getting transformed as Digital Industries. One of the key elements underneath this transformation is, the evaluation of multi-featured, high speed, tiny microcontrollers. The global Microcontroller market estimate is with 7.6% CAGR during 2021-2023.This in turn is creating a large job space for Engineering community in the next decade in Digital Transformation domain. The major objective of this course is to equip learners towards such job space of Engineers. Thus, this course on ‘Microcontrollers and Industrial Applications’ has been designed with a clear vision and roadmap with fundamentals of Microcontrollers, methodologies for Designing microcontrollers, exploratory skill in Application-specific embedded boards and real time industrial applications. The concepts of the course are weaved with perfect demonstrations through digital platform along with use cases, which provide complete learner engagement. The course also provides an experiential knowledge and skill about embedded development boards and Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tool. The learners will be guided with a multi-purpose development boards which are preferred in Industrial applications. The pedagogy followed in the course is making learners to get a good insight about the demos and their creativity will be kindled. The in-course discussion prompt of the course, promote the learner to develop creative embedded solution for real-world applications.
