You may be familiar with Design News’s highly successful, award-winning Continuing Education Center, sponsored by Digi-Key. In 2013, the second year of the program, we produced 120 online classes, which were attended by more than 9,000 design engineers (yup, you read that right -- more than 9,000 people took these classes last year).
There’s no question we will continue this program through 2014, but with an added wrinkle -- actually significantly more than a wrinkle. The IEEE considers the quality of these classes to be so high that it is awarding Professional Development Hours to students who take (and actively participate in) Design News’s Continuing Education Center classes.
You can start earning your hours next Monday, Jan. 13, while learning how to develop apps for embedded Android applications. Future classes cover topics like wireless test methods, embedded Linux, designing with FPGAs, choosing the right MCU for your design, and so on.
The schedule is pretty solid through the first half of the year, but we’re still exploring topics beyond that. So if there’s something you have a need to learn, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can organize a class around it.
