Your One-Stop Resource for Great Computer Engineering

Welcome to The Engineer Tutor

We hope you enjoy your experience with this site.  Take a look around and leave a suggestion.  We are constantly working on the site to improve it and could use your help.  Do you have an engineering class that is difficult for you?  Would you like some help?  We specialize in Computer Science subjects and are very good at microcontroller development.  Do you have a senior project that involves a microcontroller that you are having problems with?  We can help with that.  Let us know how we can help you!  Is there a project you would like to see us do.  Contact us and give us suggestions.

New Library uploaded Saturday March 29, 2014

I have spent many hours working on this library.  I wanted to make the PIC as easy to program as the Arduino but have a better platform to run on.  There is an RTOS in this library that is extremely simple but makes the PIC very easy to work with and to do multiple things at the same time.  It uses MPLAB-X and an XC16 compiler which is all free from Microchip.  Check out the tutorials on how to get started.  If you have any questions let me know.  You can get the library in the downloads section.

Beta Testers Wanted

We are looking for Beta testers.  The site is going live in just a few days.  Sign up and you will be hearing from us.


We do contracting!  We have expertise in firmware and electronic design.  If you need some help or have a project that you would like us to bid on we would be happy to do that.  Just contact us.
