What are the Career Roles in Embedded Systems?

 

Many electronic products contain embedded systems leading to an increase in career opportunities.

 

Embedded systems aid in regulating and controlling the internal working of electronic devices. This line of work typically calls for knowledge and industry skills in both hardware and software. Thus, a career in embedded systems is relatable to a career in Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI). Embedded systems design focuses on executing code on a flexible piece of hardware. VLSI focuses on converting programming instructions into an integrated circuit's structure. 

 

What Does An Embedded Systems Engineer Do? 

Embedded systems control devices that lack the hardware or Operating Systems (OS) of conventional computers. Engineers specializing in embedded systems design, create and develop systems in non-intelligent devices. These systems are first written and customized and undergo countless iterations based on system testing. Industries in which embedded systems include consumer electronics, automobiles, aviation systems, and industrial machinery. 

 

In addition to developing and integrating software, embedded systems engineers are also in charge of maintaining and optimizing the system. Embedded system engineers also take into account variations such as temperature and humidity when designing their systems. This requires an in-depth understanding of circuit designing and coding. 

 

Skills Required To Be An Embedded Systems Engineer 

 

Knowledge & Experience in C and C++ Languages 

A bachelor’s degree in engineering is a prerequisite to be an embedded systems engineer. You must be proficient in C languages along with skills in other programming languages such as Python and Labview. 

 

If you are currently an undergraduate engineering student, you should have appropriate internships in embedded systems. Signing up for courses that help you develop skills in embedded systems programming also provides you with good placement opportunities. At Skill-Lync, we offer a comprehensive course on Embedded System Design and Development for EV Applications

 

Knowledge & Experience in C and C++ Languages



Circuit Designing 

Embedded systems engineers work with both software and hardware. This means that you must have enough knowledge of circuit designing and all the mechanical aspects of embedded systems including; printed circuit boards, sensors, microprocessors, memory, and CAD

 

Analytical Skills and Detail-Orientedness 

Embedded engineers require analytical problem-solving skills. As an embedded systems engineer, you have to design systems that act as effective solutions for your industry. This can include studying product data and doing research. 

 

An embedded systems engineer must be vigilant when dealing with little parts of these systems that make a large whole. A lack of detail-orientedness can increase project costs.

 

Communication Skills & Teamwork

Finally, as an embedded system engineer you need to have excellent communication skills. Such employees co-operate with a diverse team of production managers, software engineers, hardware designers, and management officials to create a good product. To work as an embedded systems engineer you need excellent teamwork skills.

 

Career Opportunities 

The scope of career options in embedded systems is wide: it can range from working with IoT and embedded systems to automotive embedded systems. There is an increase in the demand for embedded systems engineers in India due to the government encouraging manufacturing work. 

There is an increase in electronic manufacturing in the country. Inevitably, the demand for embedded systems engineers and VLSI engineers increases every day. 

 

The main career roles in embedded systems include: 

  1. Embedded Software Testing Engineers 
  2. Model-based Development Engineers 
  3. System Analyst 

 

The average salary of an embedded systems engineer is to be about ₹4.5 lakhs a year. These salaries range from ₹2 lakhs per annum to as high as ₹15 lakhs per annum. The following factors determine your salary; your company, skillset, experience, and job role. 

 

There is a skill gap between graduates in engineering and job roles in industries. There is not enough exposure given to you with just an engineering course. This is why PG programs that specialize in embedded systems are growing increasingly popular. To get ahead, it is a good idea for engineering students to pursue further certification in the field. This helps you gain experience through internships and practical exposure, improving your career options in embedded systems. 

 

Conclusion

The wide scope of job roles in embedded systems and the intriguing mix of working in software and hardware both make it a desirable career. The current market for electronics and automotive is growing, increasing the demand for skilled embedded systems engineers. Someone with a knack for both coding and circuit designing would be best suited for such job roles. 

 

Skill- Lync, offers a comprehensive course in embedded systems, specifically in Electric Vehicle (EV) applications. Such a program gives you an in-depth understanding of the topic while also providing you with hands-on practical exposure. This includes learning about the software programming involved, learning how the automotive embedded systems industry works and training in problem-solving approaches that will help you in your everyday job.
