An embedded systems engineer assists in the design, development, and maintenance of embedded systems in products. Software development is often a part of the job. However, it also requires a thorough understanding of full embedded systems. An embedded engineer works on embedded systems that have a specified mission to complete. The software that is part of the system is often developed by the engineer. The engineer may also assist with the testing of the complete system to verify that it functions properly. The work responsibilities of an embedded engineer are determined by their job title and experience. A junior embedded engineer concentrates on understanding the system's fundamentals. A main embedded engineer may contribute to the overall design and improvement of the system.

Embedded systems are a combination of hardware and software designed to provide a specific function within a larger system. Embedded systems are increasingly common in the world of the Internet of Things as more of our devices and products are connected directly to real-time monitoring. System design for interconnected products allows computing systems to safely monitor, track, and repair faster than ever possible. Computer science can now create these intricate systems within a broader framework that makes it easier to control and implement these pieces without losing overall control. The world is moving towards the ease of IoT. What used to take a ton of human power can now be accomplished by the power of machine learning and AI. Embedded system software ranges from little to no user interface to complex user experiences that more deeply connect us to the devices in our world. Consumer electronics, cars, agricultural equipment, manufacturing, and medical equipment are all possible locations for embedded software. The development process for this new era can be complex, and it's worth it to learn the types of hardware and software tools available to you.

Manufacturers are embedding software into automobiles, homes, appliances, and other things that consumers use on a regular basis as technology advances and becomes more complicated. These embedded systems may operate anything from a basic digital calculator to a large industrial robot or guided missile. Consumer electronics, aerospace, medical research, and the automobile industry are all good places to work as an embedded developer or embedded engineer. The primary goal of an embedded engineer is to operate and/or manage a physical device. As a result, it has been tuned to satisfy the unique requirements of embedded systems, all for the advantage of the user. Embedded software programmers do not code for PCs, even if they work on them; their software runs on other platforms (e.g., an electronic board with a microcontroller). Embedded engineers, for example, flash their binary executable files on an electrical circuit board. They do this via the use of debugging tools or specialized ports.

From entry level until retirement, the embedded Engineer job path provides several alternatives. Starting your career as a junior embedded developer, for example, gives you the option to advance to senior embedded engineer. You must, however, put forth the effort. An embedded engineer, like a doctor or a lawyer, must keep current with their specialty in order to be informed about the newest innovations in the market.

Course Objectives

  • Understand embedded systems and embedded engineering
  • Learn about the legacy embedded systems and the paradigm shift in this sector
  • Using MATLAB create and build embedded software (or another programming language)
  • For developing code, you should be familiar with peripherals, compilers, vision control, and text editors.
  • To convert code, libraries, debuggers, and simulators, you'll need to know how to use assemblers.
  • Understand electronics schematics and embedded hardware systems.
  • Communicate and solve problems

Who is this course for?

The target audience for an Embedded Engineer career path programme is typically individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in embedded systems engineering or related fields. This may include recent graduates or professionals who are looking to gain specialized knowledge and skills in embedded systems design, development, and testing, and are interested in pursuing a career as an Embedded Engineer.

In addition, the programme may be suitable for individuals who are currently working in the engineering or IT field, but are looking to specialize in embedded systems engineering or take on more senior roles in their organizations. The programme may also be relevant for individuals who are interested in starting their own engineering business, as it provides a strong foundation in embedded systems design, microcontroller programming, and system integration.

The Embedded Engineer career path programme is designed to provide a comprehensive education in embedded systems engineering, including hardware and software design, programming, and testing, and is suitable for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in embedded systems engineering or related fields. The programme may require some prior knowledge of engineering or programming concepts, but may also include introductory courses for individuals who are new to the field.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
