Overview

Embedded Systems Development (ESD) is a four-semester (16 months) graduate certificate program including a one-semester exploration of career management or an optional co-op in the embedded systems industry. The program is aimed at providing the student with a solid understanding of the embedded systems industry, gaining hands-on skills in the development (design and implementation) of both hardware and software for embedded systems.

The program integrates a hands-on, practical approach to augment theoretical knowledge a student may already have come into the program. Applied projects and lab work help prepare graduates for a career in embedded systems development.

Applying to the Co-op Stream

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term instead of the Guided Career Management course.

Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.

The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.

Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply to the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.

To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum overall 80% session weighted average in Level 1 with no dropped or failed courses.

Career opportunities

Students graduate with the embedded software and electronic hardware development skills and experience necessary to design and implement innovative new embedded solutions for industry or entrepreneurial endeavours. Entry-level positions for graduates of this program include embedded hardware designer, embedded hardware developer, embedded software developer, software specialist, embedded solution tester, quality control professional and entrepreneur. In addition to these, career path opportunities include project manager, embedded systems production manager and industry consultant.
