Embedded systems work in interaction with their environment and other systems; they sense, process and communicate and even scavenge their energy from the environment. Embedded systems interact with people or work invisibly in the background.
Many embedded systems are designed to increase safety, such as the automatic anti-collision braking of a car, and some for fun, for example a camera that augments reality in an outdoor game. The Information Technology - Embedded Systems program offered by Tampere University will combine hardware and software expertise.
As an expert in embedded systems, you will have a variety of career opportunities. There are numerous fascinating applications and interesting companies in the market. The global embedded systems market is worth over 200 billion USD and growing rapidly.
A survey conducted in 2017 demonstrates that an embedded system product design team consists, on average, of 15 people, of which 60% are in embedded SW and 40% in HW design. The figures show that there is room for both small and large companies in the market, in both application and technology development.
