How lucrative a career choice is Embedded Systems???

Let’s find out…

Today, for anybody entering the field of software, it makes great sense to choose a career in embedded systems as there is no dearth of opportunities. It also gives immense intellectual satisfaction to work on the development of embedded systems because you work with the core of the system very near to the hardware without any barriers. The systems that you build touch the common man’s life. You write software to control appliances like washers, dryers, refrigerators and cars. But, you can also work on higher-end systems that control robots,  move huge machines and automated factories.

The Embedded systems field is poised for huge growth worldwide. In the consumer segment alone there are 2 billion embedded devices expected to hit the market every year. This provides a huge opportunity to various organizations to come up with new and innovative embedded products.

Companies like Bosch, Siemens-VDO and Delphi are leading names in Automotive Electronics – which is the discipline dealing with  embedded systems for vehicles. Similarly, companies like General Electric, ABB and Siemens are engaged in building systems for industrial automation and process control which use embedded systems. These companies also build embedded systems which control railway signals, car assembly lines, mills, petrochemical plants, bottling plants, pharmaceutical factories – the list goes on and on.

Defense services use embedded systems in guided missiles and for detecting incoming enemy missiles and aircraft. In Medical Electronics, embedded systems are used in monitors, scanners, radiology machines used for chemotherapy, diagnostic equipments and critical systems like pacemakers, ventilators and incubators. Thus embedded systems cover a broad range of products.

The international markets for product development in embedded systems alone comes to about $ 75 billion(Rs.4 lakh crores). Meeting this high demand requires highly trained and competent professionals. Organizations like :
