Course Info

CSE 201: The Forge: Immersive System-Building Lab I

First course in a two-course sequence. An immersive quarter focused on a comprehensive introduction to basic fabrication and microcontroller systems. The course will cover the basics of microcontroller board design (schematics, layouts, and PCB creation with KiCAD), firmware (how to program boards, simple and advanced toolchains with Arduino and Eclipse), and input and output devices (sensors and motors/actuators). It will also cover basic fabrication to interface and build complete systems with these microcontrollers, focused on Fusion360 and practical skills in computer controlled cutting (vinyl and laser cutters) and 3D printing.

(CSC 242 OR CSC 243) AND MAT 130 AND Instructor Permission are prerequisites for this class.
