Qt For Embedded Systems - Course Overview

Emertxe’s Qt for Embedded Systems course will build you with a good understanding about Qt for Embedded Linux. You will be able to learn end-to-end knowledge of Qt application development for Embedded systems and port them for an ARM based target. This course will also enable you to build IoT use-cases by interfacing real-time data from sensors and create charts/graphs for decision making. 



Qt for Embedded Systems course is designed to equip participants with the skills to develop graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for embedded systems. This course will focus on leveraging the powerful features and functionalities offered by Qt to create compelling and responsive user interfaces tailored for resource-constrained Embedded Systems.


This course will focus on core embedded systems design aspects like optimizing performance, managing memory constraints, and designing interfaces considering hardware limitations. Entire course will have a lot of hands-on focus, enabling you to design, prototype, and deploy GUI applications for various embedded platforms.


By the end of the course, you will emerge with the skills and confidence to tackle complex embedded GUI development projects using Qt, positioning as proficient developers in this rapidly evolving field.

Qt is a cross-platform GUI application development framework for various hardware and software platforms (E.g. desktop, embedded and mobile). It is supported in all major platforms like Linux, OS X, Windows, VxWorks, QNX, Android, iOS, Black-Berry, Sailfish OS and others. Qt is not a programming language on its own. It is a framework written in C++. You write the code once and make binaries for all platforms with a little or no change in the code.

Android also very popular in embedded systems. But to develop android applications we need to learn Java. Java is an excellent language, but for Android mobile development, C++ has a few advantages. These include a smaller memory footprint, as C++ is nearer the metal and has no garbage collection. C++ is a superset of C and should compile virtually all C programs, so you could reuse C software. If you’re an experienced C++ developer who wants to get into Android development, using Qt is a better choice.

Qt is primarily aimed for Application developers who can come any of the categories.

  • Programmers developing applications for desktops, embedded devices and/or targeting multiple platforms – Windows, UNIX and Mac will greatly benefit from this training.
  • Beginners: Who knows C++ and interested to learn GUI frameworks

The Qt Company support team works hand-in-hand with Qt R&D developers and is committed to ensure the success of your project. We provide our commercial customers with exceptional support and guidance on the use of Qt APIs, functions, methods and programming techniques for all major platforms.

There are lots of forums and communities available to support you

  • Qt forum
  • Qt mailing list
  • Qt Quick/QML forum
  • Graphical editors

Qt Documentation:

Compared to other frameworks, Qt has an extensive documentation support and a collection of code samples and tutorials are provided with Qt to help new users get started with Qt development. These documents cover a range of topics, from basic use of widgets to step-by-step tutorials that show how an application is put together.

Certainly. The course is designed in a generic way by keeping application design paradigms as primary agenda backed with practical sessions. These learnings to a larger extent remain the same between a PC and embedded device.
