Abstract. This paper addresses the issue of educating software engineers in embedded systems development. With the rapidly growing markets of embedded devices and their interconnections due to the ubiquitous presence of the Internet, leading to the emergence of cyberphysical systems, educating software engineers and computer scientists on these subjects at the college level is becoming essential. The paper presents an approach to teaching software development for small embedded devices with lab projects at the undergraduate level, to match the fast pace of technological progress and challenges of real-world applications.
