Course : Post Graduate Diploma In Embedded System Design
Code : ED500
Number of Seats : 40

Course Preamble:
To better compete in the global market, successful companies are finding that investments in hardware and software are no longer enough. Human elements with specialized engineering and design skills have become the essential part of the equation.

Embedded systems are ubiquitous. We find them everywhere- at our homes offices, in shopping malls, in hospitals, in cars, in air craft and so on. They monitor and control everything from spacecraft to robots, microwave ovens, automobiles, consumer electronics and much more. They control virtually everything that is electronic in our lives.

Embedded systems are normally built around Microcontrollers, ARM Processors and FPGAs or SOCs. This Embedded System Design course focuses on Embedded Programming with C on ARM Microcontrollers, Embedded and Real-Time Operating Systems along with Embedded Product Design and System design with FPGAs.

Course Objective:
To mould fresh electronics engineers and to retrain working engineers into High Caliber Embedded System Designers by enhancing their knowledge and skills in various hardware and software design aspects of Embedded Systems. This course offers a range of topics of immediate relevance to industry and makes the students exactly suitable for industries engaged in Embedded System development. This course is also an excellent preparation for those wishes to engage in application research in this rapidly developing area.
