PG in Electronics and Embedded Systems Development

PG in Electronics and Embedded Systems Development

A One-Year Ontario College Graduate Certificate Program
Program Code: ESD1
Campus Code: LC (LC - London)
September/January Admission
15 week terms

Overview:- This graduate certificate program is designed to enhance and build on the theoretical knowledge gained from studies in electrical engineering and provides students with training in various electrical technologies, embedded systems and computer aided design (CAD) with a focus on automation, robotic and control systems.
Topics related to the business of electronics, entrepreneurship, importing, exporting and renewable and sustainable energies will be reviewed. An applied capstone project will provide students with the opportunity to design, implement and manage real world solutions using skills in industrial communications, supervision, project management and documentation.

COMM-6027 -  Industrial Communications
This course focuses on written and verbal communication skills. Students learn to prepare a variety of professional documents. In addition, students learn about research methods and documentation formats. The principles of effective writing – organization, grammar, style, clarity, and tone – are reinforced throughout the course. Students will also practice oral communication skills in a variety of situations. The goal of the course is to prepare students for the communication tasks and considerations they will encounter in the workplace and/or future education in order to meet the needs of employers and/or the communities they will serve. This course will also help to prepare students for their work in COMM-6028.

COMM-6028 -  Project Communications
Students will prepare interim reports, submit final project documentation and present the results of their practical field project to peers using effective written and oral communication strategies. Students will examine the values, customs and communication styles of cultural groups, with an emphasis on implications for business. An understanding of different cultures and cross-cultural challenges will provide students with a framework for professional conduct and international business communications.

MGMT-6098 -  Project Management
Students will be introduced to project management principles, including how to manage the components and tasks related to complex projects involving multiple individuals and teams. Through a structured multi-tiered approach, students will identify and manage risks associated with project development and implementation

Career Opportunities
Employers from more traditional electronic engineering companies as well as specialized controls and systems companies are all expected to move forward with embedded systems projects and will be employing people with this specific training and education. Graduates can expect to be employed in the following areas; electronics engineer, firmware developer, embedded systems developer, embedded hardware developer/designer, embedded software developer/designer, embedded solution tester, and quality control professional.
