Begin Java with TCLab

The Begin Java with TCLab is an introduction and review of basic Java programming with 12 lessons that can be completed in 2-3 hours (15-20 minutes each).

The course is designed to start from no programming experience and guide a self-paced learner through the basics of Python. The 12 modules are run from Eclipse or another Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The tutorials start with how to install Java and use the hands-on lab kit. The exercises are interactive and there are solution videos for each module for those who need additional help.

Temperature Control Lab

The final project is a review of all course material with real data from temperature sensors in the Temperature Control Lab (TCLab). The temperatures are adjusted with heaters that are adjusted with the TCLab. This lab hardware is also used in the Process Dynamics and Control Course and the Dynamic Optimization Course.
