Embedded Systems Training

  • Embedded Systems Training (VG-EMBEDDED) is a 15 weeks course structured to enable engineers develop skills in full breadth of Embedded systems starting from Micro controller architecture, standard peripherals protocols, Embedded C, RTOS, Linux, and ARM based boards. Course is offered in both classroom and online training modes. Embedded Systems Training in Bangalore is targeted towards BE, ME fresher’s and Engineers working in other domains planning to make career in Embedded systems domain. Course structure is framed keeping in mind the current industry requirements. Course is offered by Mr. Girish Kumar, industry veteran with more than 20+ years of industry experience, runs his own company in embedded systems domain.(Refer to trainer profile in last tab)

    Embedded Systems Training is divided in to multiple aspects, with training focused on all aspects from Embedded Systems basics, all industry standard micro controller architectures, Embedded C programming, standard interface protocols, RTOS, Linux drivers, and multiple industry standard projects based on Arduino and Beaglebone boards. All these topics are covered with practical examples based on these boards.

    Embedded Systems Training course also covers multiple hands-on projects based on industry standard micro controllers, Linux drivers and RTOS. Learning starts from developing simple board based projects to complex projects involving multiple peripherals connected to make a complex Embedded system. Course also focus on projects based on RTOS and Linux driver development. All these projects are done from scratch. Course curriculum also ensures that student does these projects hands-on with trainer guidance as part of dedicated lab sessions.

    Embedded Systems Training also includes 50+ detailed assignments (20 in Micro controllers, Peripherals, 10 in Embedded C, and 20 in RTOS, Linux drivers and industry standard projects). These assignments are prepared by industry experts covering all aspects from Embedded systems. Student gets to work on these assignments with complete guidance from trainers and student learning is evaluated using completion of assignments as the sole criteria. Student is offered with multiple (more than 10+) interview opportunities based on performance in assignments. Completion of all these assignments make a fresher as good as a 3+ year experienced engineer. That’s the quality of assignments!VLSIGuru Institute has expertise in both VLSI and Embedded system domain. We have trained more than 1000 graduates over last 5 years since training was started in 2012. VLSIGuru Institute is rated among the Best Embedded Training Institutes in Bangalore .
