Diploma in Embedded Systems (DES)
Realizing the growth of embedded systems in day-to-day life and the need for trained manpower in this promising area, Unimatics has launched a Diploma in Embedded Systems (DES) for Engineers in computers, electronics and IT. Embedded Systems is a unique field, where engineers need to have sound knowledge in hardware and software design. Keeping this aspect in view, Unimatics has designed the diploma giving equal emphasis to hardware and software, enabling engineers to face challenges in the design and development of state of the art embedded systems.
Diploma in Embedded Systems(DES) is a 16 weeks full-time course consisting of 5 modules, an industry relevant project and a seminar. Daily sessions comprise 2 hours of lecture followed by 2 hours of lab work
