The « E301B Programmation C » activity, taught to students in third year of bachelor in electronics and in computer science engineering at the ECAM Brussels Engineering School (ECAM), is about C programming. In addition to the programming language, the course also presents how data are represented in the memory, the structure of a program in memory and some basic elements about system programming.

I started to give this course in 2017 and I am currently giving it for the third time. The course is taught in English, but all the material is available in English and in French.
