Aim (of the course)

Micro controller operating principles, interfacing technologies and programming techniques will be studied. The aim is in the knowledge level where it will be possible to evaluate microcontroller solutions on different phases of product development for a smart product. The course gives as well a good starting point for further studies or even a career in designing digital electronics and microcontroller solutions.


A review on microcontroller products and operating principles will be given. Sensor input circuits and control output circuits will be studied in detail. There is a training module on object oriented programming and C++ fundamentals for those who haven’t experience on those. The microcontroller programming will be done by using classes and methods offered by an operating system developed especially for microcontroller applications, the ARM Mbed OS. Establishing communication over Ethernet and WLAN (WiFi) will be practiced. The developed code will be tested on microcontroller hardware.


5 cr


Online study. Within the given period the students can individually decide the timing of studying the fundamentals and completing the tasks.

Target group

HAMK’s open UAS studies are for all who want to study in a university.
Studies on programming fundamentals or similar knowledge gained in working life is preferable but not absolutely necessary.


4 March – 6 May 2022

Always check the information in the study guide.


More information

Students of the Open University of Applied Sciences register for their studies during the registration periods of the Open University of Applied Sciences using the form available on HAMK’s website. The tuition fee for open studies is 15 Euros/credit. The fee is paid upon registration. There are a limited number of study places and the places will be filled in the order of registration.

Course feedback is given at the end of the course. The provision of Spark study feedback is possible no earlier than seven (7) days before the end date indicated in the implementation plan and will continue for 14 days after the end of implementation. The student will receive a reminder email (to about giving feedback on the end date of the implementation, if no feedback has been given before. Open University of Applied Sciences students provide course feedback via a browser at


HAMK open university is for you if you would like to study – No mutter of what your base knowledge or age is!

Anyone interested can enroll for HAMK open university studies. In your studies you can develop your professional skills or update your’ know how! Studies are bachelor level studies and parts of different degrees.

Choose open studies if you want to develop yourself or your professional skills. You can also further or update other study units.

A Study path is the correct choice for you, if your aim is to get a new degree. This way you can move on to a degree student without an entrance exam. The study path differs from other open studies as it automatically aims after a year to open a way for degree studies.
