Embedded system design is an important sub-branch of engineering which is developing at a certain pace. It can be said as the combination of electrical electronics engineering and computer engineering. The aim of the embedded system is to perform the single specific task. Embedded systems are a specific combination of microcontrollers which controls certain tasks.
The application of embedded system can be seen in communication technology, automobile engineering, medical technology and electronic system designs. Devices such as cell phones medical types of equipment traffic signals are specific examples of an embedded system.
Microcontrollers are the bedrock of embedded system design. A B.E or B.tech course in electronics engineering widely covers microcontrollers, signal systems and interface technology which are important parts of the embedded system. Though currently, no institute offers a specific undergraduate program in the embedded system but many prominent institutes in India offer a postgraduate M.E. or M.tech course in an embedded system.
Top institutes in India which offers a postgraduate course in embedded system.
1) Indian Institute of technology
IITs are the top reputed institutions in the world. It offers a comprehensive M.tech course in embedded systems. IITs such as Kharagpur, Guwahati offer M.tech program in embedded system. Admissions to M.tech program is based upon GATE examination score. The advantages about IITs working in embedded system are that they have state of art research infrastructure for related courses and huge pool of talented faculties. In addition most of the IITs are in collaboration with top ministries and innovative universities of the world.
National institute of technology such as Kozhikode, Bhopal, Rourkela and Surat offer M.tech program in embedded system design. Again admission to NIT M.tech program is dependent upon GATE score. NITs are ranked after IITs and provide immense opportunity for research and development.
3) BITS Pilani
BITS Pilani offers M.E program in embedded system design. The institute is one of the top private colleges of India. It possesses state of art laboratories for a course in embedded system design.

Career prospect in embedded system design
The fact that embedded solutions are used almost in every technology based company makes this field a lucrative one. Many companies hire embedded system engineers on large scale. The presence of giants such as Samsung, Apple, Sigma and thousands of other companies provide a robust market for engineers working in the concerned field.
It’s just the easily available jobs and well known process to join IT sector which prohibits several engineers from joining embedded system design. But the embedded sector is itself a vast sector which has ability to provide several job opportunities. The giant leap taken by technology in automation, industrial design, climate change products and communication equipments creates a robust opportunities for embedded system engineers to innovate and contribute.
An engineer can join embedded system in the following role
It is important that an engineer who wants to work in embedded field will have to undergo basic knowledge training program in embedded system. The courses in embedded system are based on practical application. So a student must be technically sound in practical applications and practical knowledge.
Most of the engineering colleges give a very low priority to microcontrollers and their simulations. Even the electronics engineering degree course in India will have a single subject on microcontrollers. So it is important that a student should acquire a sufficient knowledge about microcontrollers, signals and system, complex electronic circuits. Same time students should know about basic software languages such as C, C+, and Kernel etc.
Industrial experts are of the view that there is lot of scope for further development of embedded systems. Particularly in India, it is in the mid stages of development. The advent of new technology in automation will give further fillip to embedded system. As far as career growth in embedded system is concern, it will depend upon innovative ability and out of box thinking of the engineer. The knowledge processing and its innovative application accompanied by smart work will sail an embedded system designer to new heights.
