KTH Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems
“An autumn with emphasis on education! “
This autumn ICES has had a lot of focus on education within embedded systems! We started in August with the ICES education workshop which
focused on the future engineering education related to embedded systems. In September the ICES Focus Group R & D Managers had a meeting about
how to succeed in recruiting enough people to engineering education, making the engineering profession more attractive to young people. In October,
Martin Törngren and Martin Grimheden led the WESE/ESWEEK workshop about Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems education in New Delhi; in
November Martin Törngren led the CPS-Education Development workshop at University of California, Berkeley; and in December ICES chairman Tor
Ericson was interviewed in KTH Campi about how to enhance the status of teachers within the academic world. During this autumn we also decided to
further strengthen continued education within ICES by offering one-day-courses in selected areas. The first course will be about Software Testing, it is
given by Karl Meinke on the 13th of January 2015 – don’t forget to sign up! We are also concluding a lab inventory of the different labs at KTH related
to embedded systems, in order to find potential synergies and opportunities.
Thank you so much to all of you who participated in the ICES annual Conference 2014! Many of you have asked for the presentations from the
conference; as always you can find the presentations from all our events on ICES web page under Previous events, or use this direct link!
In January ICES co-director Maria Wäppling will go on parental leave and we are very glad to welcome back former co-director Anders Eklund who will
be replacing her during this time!
