Arm Education

Arm technology is at the heart of a computing and connectivity revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate. More than 70% of the world’s population are using Arm technology, which is securely powering products from the sensor to the smartphone to the supercomputer.

Arm Education is part of the Research Group in Arm. Our mission is to help close education and skills gaps in computer engineering and wider science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines for the benefit of society.

By drawing on Arm’s technological expertise, innovation and partner eco-system, we provide content to help both teachers and leaners achieve their objectives. By creating and promoting products and content, often in partnership with others, Arm Education seeks to support people from diverse backgrounds to succeed – and thereby enriching the workforce of the future.

In addition to courses and programs on edX for learners, Arm Education separately provides a series of Education Kits available for free worldwide to teaching academics in the fields of electronics engineering, computer engineering and computer science. These kits focus on foundational subjects and consist of modular elements (slides, videos and lab work) which can be used in part or in whole by academics to supplement their own course material. Our digital-first publishing operation offers a range of complementary electronic and physical textbooks and reference books.

Arm Education courses, programs and Educational Kits are all focused on fundamental topics and the essential principles of hardware and software design, critical for today’s engineering workplace. Arm architecture provides the reference platform – but the learning outcomes are relevant to anyone interested in understanding our increasingly connected and intelligent world, irrespective of technology choice.

By providing affordable, contemporary and easy to use educational resources, Arm Education hopes to reduce the barrier to entry for new participants in computer engineering. We are excited about what you will build today and in the future.
