Embedded System Careers: How lucrative are they?

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 :

– have invested substantial amounts in product development and R & D. Training and Development of skilled personnel in this area have become one of the crucial challenges for Indian policy makers.

So how do you go about getting trained for such a lucrative career opportunity? Read on….

Another IT revolution!

According to the National Research Council, Information technology (IT) is on the verge of another revolution.

The use of Embedded [Networked] Systems throughout society could well dwarf previous milestones in the information revolution. These systems of embedded computers have the potential to change radically the way people interact with their environment by linking together a range of devices and sensors that will allow information to be collected, shared, and processed in unprecedented ways.

So, just what is an embedded system?

In short – one can understand it as a combination of hardware and software which together form a component of a larger machine.

An embedded system is designed to run on its own without human intervention, and may be required to respond to events in real time. Embedded systems are used in industrial machines, automobiles, medical equipment, cameras, household appliances, airplanes, vending machines, cellular phone, PDA’s, toys and many other devices.

And they are everywhere !

Not everything can be learned in a classroom – and no one knows this better, than a fresher on her/his first day at college….

Given these odds – that freshers require intensive on the job training that prepares them for the job at hand – Amplify Mindware institute, works with various IT and Management organizations to provide comprehensive training solutions for fresh recruits!

What’s special about your college?

So, most of us have some sort of sentiment attached to our respective colleges….

Sometimes its the cafeteria sandwiches that we remember, other times, its that one amazing faculty member that made college seem like a second home – and most often its that group of friends that you practically live with for four years and then one fine day you all part ways and sort of grow up!!!

So, during my 11th and 12th years of Science in St. Xaviers, Mumbai – I was a Xavierite – AND BOY – did I take pride in it!

Strutted around campus every morning, feeling like I was the cat’s whiskers and there was no better place to be.

But after HSC it became clear that the world was much larger …. our college gang parted ways and after the initial manic efforts to stay in touch… we sort of move on!

Now, I’m at a new college (Amplify Mindware), with a new set of friends, another special faculty member that makes college feel like a second home…. and a whole new set of career options in the IT field available to me.

Andddd…. believe it or not a new identity!!! Here’s a riddle to discovering it…

What’s a circle, triangle and square at the same time….

Keep watching this space to know why the college chose this identity…

and feel free to share…. what is your special college identity???
