Eighteen polytechnic universities across China have joined the program, which is supported by the Association of Fundamental Computing Education in Chinese Universities. The program will offer teaching materials to support embedded system courses based on STM32-based development boards, ARM mbed-enabled embedded system designs and ARM Keil MDK development tools. Over the next five years, the program aims to establish 200 innovation labs across graduate schools, universities, and professional institutions.
“With the increasingly dynamic electronics industry, teaching-materials preparation that addresses the latest technologies is one of the biggest challenges for teachers,” said Prof. Bao Jie, Association of Fundamental Computing Education in Chinese Universities. “Leveraging industry advancements such as the ARM mbed and ST STM32 Microcontroller platforms, the innovation labs can really help teachers to develop young talented people by giving them solid theoretical knowledge, great practical skills, and a sense of design and creativity.”
“ARM is successful because its ecosystem is full of inspiring and expert people,” said Allen Wu, EVP and president for Greater China, ARM. “The IoT represents an enormous growth opportunity for Chinese technology companies on the world stage and we want to support that. The STM32 Innovation Lab gives educators access to the latest teaching materials from the ARM University Program to ensure students begin their career path in the Chinese technology industry in the best way possible.”
