This content relates to a deprecated version of Mbed

Mbed 2 is now deprecated. For the latest version please see the Mbed OS documentation.

Here at mbed HQ we're trying to support educational institutions as best we can. Some of the things we can offer are listed here. If there are other ways in which we can help, please feel free to drop us a line at

Using mbed in classes, labs and groups

Every user working on mbed should have their own user account, just like with email.

We have recently removed the restriction the meant an mbed can only be used to register a single account. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to use the "signup codes" we have supplied in the past.

Microcontroller Sponsorship

If you are a student (or a member of staff) undertaking some interesting project work or research that would be valuable to the mbed community, you can apply to receive a sponsored microcontroller.

More details about this program can be found at the Sponsorship page.

Workshops and Demo Sessions

If you are looking to trial mbed in your establishment, or want to run a workshop to teach others about mbed, we can help out by providing notes/powerpoint for a trial workshop session to introduce the audience to mbed. Give us an email at
