Arm University Program Education Kits

To help faculty teach the latest technology from Arm and its ecosystem, the Arm University Program has developed a suite of Education Kits in a range of core subjects relevant to Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and beyond.  An Education Kit comprises a full set of teaching materials including lecture slides and lab manuals with solutions.  

Note: Some courses may require professional software tools a donation of which must be requested separately. Any hardware requirements for labs may be purchased directly from distributors.


Arm software development tools are available to support the Education Kits as donations. Request your first-year software donation or license renewal below.
