M. Tech. in Embedded Systems and Solutions
Embedded Systems are application specific electronic sub-systems which are completely encapsulated by the main system it belongs to. The main system can range from household appliances, home automation, consumer electronics, ATMs, network routers, automobiles, aircrafts, IoT, etc. The M. Tech. programme in Embedded Systems and Solution (ESS) has been introduced in the Department to foster growth and entrepreneurship in Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) and to help meet growing demand of highly skilled manpower in various domains of Embedded System Design which is essential to support Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM), a much sort-after destination as endorsed in National Policy on Electronics by the Govt. of India.
The M. Tech. programme in Embedded Systems and Solutions (ESS) is a four semester programme. The first three semesters of the programme comprise of academic course work. During the fourth semester, a student has to take up an industry internship, and pursue academic research in the Department leading to M. Tech. thesis (no grouping is permitted). The programme also includes a unique 4-week period at the beginning of the programme called a “Preparatory Term”. The preparatory term in intended to bring all the incoming students up to a uniform background that is considered essential to embark on M. Tech. degree in Embedded Systems and Solutions. This Preparatory Term covers a programming course and a course on electronic circuits and systems. After the 4-week preparatory term, the first semester of the M. Tech. programme consists of foundational courses in Embedded Systems that include the fundamentals of embedded systems, microcontrollers, digital system design and wireless communication and networks. The second semester includes an 8-week period called the “Winter Term” which is intended to build foundation of research aptitude and presentation skills in the students. In this term the students through self-study will learn various research methodologies and prepare seminar presentation on some contemporary topic in electronic system design. The second and third semesters includes advanced topics in embedded system design that include embedded programming languages, system design with ARM Cortex microcontrollers, VLSI architecture and design methodologies, digital signal processor and architecture and internet of things. Students shall have to choose four elective courses in their area of interest and specialization. The final semester is designated for industry Internship or a research Thesis.
