Being a core-engineering student, what we were taught regarding technology is how to become a user. Few options were there to opt as career like console developer, window programming developer, designer engineer, testing engineer, web developer. No one guide about a field with exponential growth integrates above fields all in one.
Embedded system with 8bit, 16bit, 32bit microcontrollers using embedded c programming on window & Linux platform. Porting of RTOS on ARM based controllers is beneficial for newcomers because of tremendous growth in consumer goods electronics. You can learn how to work with GSM modem, GPS, while we are regular user of it. One can get a chance of 10,000 to 15,000 rupee per month in domestic companies. Post experience appraised by almost 30 to 50 percentages.
Hierarchy to become embedded system engineer:
Step 1: Learn basics of engineering
Step 2: Create interest in programming
Step 3: Choose 8bit microcontroller
Step 4: Involve in DIY (Do – It – Yourself) things & make simple things
Step 5: Take professional guidance related to embedded training.
