C Programming


<p>The <i>« E301B Programmation C »</i> activity, taught to students in 
third year of bachelor in electronics and in computer science engineering
at the <a href="">ECAM Brussels Engineering
School</a> (ECAM), is about <b>C programming</b>. 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.</p>

<p>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 <a href="/fr/teaching/ecam/c/">in
