B. Tech ECE with Specialization in Embedded System and Industrial IoT is a 4 year full-time program. The program provides basic knowledge in Electronics and Communication and some advanced concepts in embedded system and IIoT. While keeping the basic flavour of core ECE intact few courses related to embedded system and IIoT have also been included in the curriculum in order to cope up with the changing industry trends.
An embedded system is an electronic or computer system that is designed to control, access the data in electronics based systems. An embedded system can be an independent system or it can be a part of a large system which is designed to perform a specific task. Applications of embedded systems are applicable in areas like space, communication, transportation, robotic systems, home appliances, etc. The Industrial IoT represents a variety of IoT applications, smart product design principles, and data-driven automation practices in the industrial sector of economy. It widely utilizes modern sensor technology to enhance different types of equipment with remote monitoring and maintenance capabilities. On a larger scale, the Industrial IoT is a key element of Industry 4.0 or smart factory, trend of automation, which brings together modern cloud computing, and AI to create intelligent, self-optimizing industrial equipment and facilities. Keeping in mind, the idea of smart cities and the related initiatives taken by central and state Governments, the knowledge in Industrial IoT will have a huge scope in the job market.
