At DTU Skylab Digital, we have designed several courses to introduce you to specific technologies, and to help you get started with the practical application of these technologies.

Each course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises with the provided materials. Participants are asked to bring their own computers and some courses require you have some software installed.

Please see the course descriptions for more details. We recommend that you take a 101 course before a 102.

Courses are held in English, but may be held in Danish in the event that all participants are Danish-speaking.

The courses take place on Thursday afternoons from 13.00 to 16.00 and require sign-up. In the event that a course is fully booked, it is possible to add yourself to the waiting list.


Courses are limited to a maximum of 8 participants at once. 

See the individual sign-up pages for each course for more details.

Stay tuned and watch the DTU Skylab calendar and social media. New dates for courses are coming soon!

Introduction to Soft Robotics

In this hands-on introduction, we will build our own soft actuators and work with air and fluids to build actuating systems. In this 3-hour course, you will learn how to design and make moulds, cast with soft silicone and actuate your robots.

Get Started with Arduino 1 & 2

In this two-part course, we will get to know the Arduino platform, work with sensors and actuators to build an embedded system. Part one covers the basics of working with electronics and programming, and in part two, you will learn to control various mechanical systems such as motors, pumps and valves.

Get Started with Python for Prototyping & Introduction to Raspberry Pi

In this two-part course, we will familiarize ourselves with programming with Python on the Raspberry Pi. In part one, we will look at Python fundamentals, getting and working with data and common libraries. In part two, we will build a simple hardware I-O system using various analogue and digital sensors on the Raspberry Pi. We will be also take a look at working with camera images, image processing and provide an overview into the capabilities of the Pi. Please note that you should be familiar with Python before taking the Raspberry Pi course, you can achieve this by taking the GSwPfP course.

Introduction to IoT at DTU Skylab

Use modern off-the-shelf sensing devices to quickly and accurately gather data and explore the digital dimension of one of DTU’s busiest locations. Familiarise yourself with climate sensing, user tracking and positioning, working with APIs and software interfaces, and integrating your own sensing devices into our infrastructure.

Make Electronic Music with Arduino!

Arduino is a low-cost microcontroller suitable for prototyping embedded devices. But did you know that you can also make sounds and music with it? In this course, we will present the Mozzi synthesis library for Arduino and build some cool instruments using sensors and prototyping materials. We will round out the workshop with an experimental chiptune jam.
