During the last month, 26 IT students participated in a summer internship program for embedded systems, organized by Seavus
The students had the opportunity to work with schematic and hardware design, components assembly and development of embedded software that interacts with various sensors. They also had the opportunity to learn about procedures for creation and execution of embedded project plan and create a device on which they conducted electrical testing. They were very dedicated and successfully completed unique embedded projects which were presented and the end of the program.
Grouped into small project teams, the interns worked on different ARM® based development boards, where they had a rare opportunity to feel the spirit of the real work in the industry, while also learning through the project management processes.
During their work, the teams designed and created several unique embedded devices: ARM Aquarium Controller, aimed to control the water hardness and temperature in a fish aquarium, manage the water pump, the heater and the lights; Room Light controller which measures and controls the light depending on its intensity and people in the room, and other interesting projects.
“It was a great challenge for the students to work on this type of projects, but I’m very happy that they were very enthusiastic”, commented Blagoj Kupev, Seavus Embedded Division Manager.
The best students were rewarded with vouchers for hi-tech courses from Seavus Education and Development Center.
The program lasted for one full month (2nd to 31st of July), and was organized by Seavus Embedded Division. The complete training was in collaboration with Seavus Education and Development Center (SEDC) and the three technical Faculties from Macedonia (FINKI, FEIT and FON).
“This is the third year that we organize the Embedded Summer Internship within Seavus with cooperation with the technical faculties. Encouraged by the positive results, we plan to continue the program next year with more programs and industry topics covered and more students enrolled“, concludes Kupev.
