Abstract

The embedded software engineers are highly demanded in recent several years in order to support fast development of SoCs and embedded systems. These engineers need both strong hardware/software knowledge and hands-on experiences of system-level software. Unfortunately, the practical training of the system software development such as the OS design and implementation is often insufficient for computer science students in Taiwan recently. To minimize the gap between theory and practical implementation, a practical implementation course of OSs is thus developed in National Chiao Tung University. The course provides students trainings on the design details of modern OSs and comprehensive hands-on practices on OS implementation. In this paper, the curriculum and hands-on lab design, the teaching experiences and student feedbacks for the trial run are presented.
