TER3M1 - Robotics

Welcome robotics engineers! Together we will be building electronics, robots and hacking technology. We will learn how to write code that will execute on a small but powerful processor. World domination can only ensue!

Robotics is a specialized version of the TEJ Computer Engineering course. The course covers computer and robotic hardware, basic electronics and digital logic, robotic mechanics (gears, electric motors/servos). Students are strongly encourged to participate in the AYJ Robotics Club
