The Electronics and Embedded Systems Development graduate certificate program builds on the theoretical knowledge gained from studies in electrical engineering developing students in the skillset of IoT, Industry 4.0 and prototyping fields. The program focuses on embedded systems design, data communications, and Human Machine Interfacing (HMI) as well as the development and testing of rapid prototypes for innovative solutions.
Topics such as project planning and breakdown, development of software for embedded system hardware, circuit design, wired and wireless networking, data communications, HMI development, test design, and reporting culminate with a practical work-integrated learning project that provides students with the opportunity to create, test, and demonstrate functional prototypes using engineering practices and solutions for technical industry careers.
Employers include traditional electronic engineering companies and employers focusing on Industry 4.0 solutions and the development of IoT innovations. Graduates can expect to be employed in the following areas: electronics engineer, firmware developer, embedded systems developer, embedded hardware developer/designer, embedded software developer/designer, embedded solution tester, and quality control professional.
