The Embedded Computer Engineering Professional Certificate provides technical professionals with the skill to design embedded computers. With increasing levels of hardware integration, faster processing capability and decreasing cost of embedded processors, new and more innovative applications are appearing regularly.
The core curriculum of the Embedded Computer Engineering Professional Certificate covers the fundamentals of real time embedded systems, controller design and programming, real-time operating systems, and hardware/software interfacing. The hands-on courses combine lecture, discussions of actual student applications and a class project. The program electives allow the student to complement the core course of study with classes most appropriate to their personal job requirements and career advancement.
The Embedded Computer Engineering Professional Certificate is designed to enhance the technical professional's basic and practical knowledge of embedded computer systems. The curriculum is applied, teaching basic embedded engineering principles, design tools, and practical skills. The instructors bring many years of practical workplace experience in the subject that they teach and expose the students to many real workplace examples.
The Embedded Computer Engineering Professional Certificate has provided career growth opportunities for many of its students in the past and could be just the training you need at this time in your career.

A degree and/or work experience background in Electrical or Computer engineering is highly advised at entry to the program. The prerequisite courses are designed to provide basic knowledge in programming or electronics if the student does not possess it.
The required courses are to be taken in sequence. This is especially mandated for the first three Embedded Computer Programming courses (ECP I, II and III). Elective courses can be taken after ECP II when knowledge in Embedded principles is acquired.
