Get the basics right!!
In every profession, getting the basics right is 50% of the success. If you chose embedded engineering then you should be STRONG in at least 2 things
- Electronics (Minimum – Electronic Principles, Digital Electronics, Microprocessors)
2. Programming (Minimum – C)
An engineering degree with electronics background is appreciated but I would not say that every embedded engineer has an engineering background. I have seen some really great embedded engineers without formal degrees. But they have strong basics. IPCS conduct Various Embedded, IoT Training for freshers and Experienced Professionals.
