    Half Yearly Training & Placements Report from Emertxe, Bangalore for the period July to December 2018. A comprehensive report that covers placement statistics, trends and opportunities for fresh engineers who are looking forward to have their career in Embedded Systems Domain.

    Embedded Systems Fresher Placements Report – Emertxe – [July – December 2018]

    About 15 years back we started our journey with the vision to empower fresh engineers by making them employable. With roughly 1.5 million Engineers passing out every year, industry-academia gap has already created deeper issues.

    On the positive note, we are able to transform them into productive and contributing engineers at various organizations. As a part of our endeavour to share our recent Embedded Systems fresher placements news, some insights are provided below for July – December of 2018.

    Embedded Placements Hiring Statistics for Freshers July – Dec 2018

    The second half of last year saw significant increase in terms of Embedded companies in Bangalore hiring Freshers. More than 95% of the companies were hiring were from Bangalore. There were some requirements from Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune who enquired for trained students from our institute during third quarter.

    Overall we had 150+ companies visiting Emertxe for placement drives during this period. A snapshot of these companies is given below:

    Vertical wise Semiconductors, Aeronautics, Automotive and IoT had more representation. With Artificial intelligence taking centre stage, semiconductor companies have requirement of smart Embedded Software driving them. In the similar lines Automotive vertical is going through transformational changes (ex: automated driver assistance) than expected.

    We believe these trends are driving increased embedded companies in Bangalore hiring freshers. Another interesting trend was to see incubation companies from prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) are driving requirements. In the past we have seen many placement companies from IIT Madras research park. Now it was heartening to see start-ups coming from newly created IIT Hyderabad incubation centre.

    What Worked for Our Students During Embedded Placement Interviews?

    The key challenge (for Embedded Institute like us) is mainly about ensuring students are able to convert these placement opportunities into job offers. Placement companies mainly visit us because they get pre-trained candidates in Embedded Systems domain with higher skill level.

    From our mentors perspective, we always push and motivate our students to achieve the goal. From the placement conversion point of view, two factors played significant role.  

    Factor 1: Foundations Still Continues to Be the Critical Factor

    we saw foundational skills continue to occupy critical place when it comes to hiring fresh engineers. Based on our interactions with multiple hiring managers, HR executives, senior management professionals and CXOs we understood foundational skills were super critical.

    They all believe fresh engineers can be trained in any particular vertical, provided they are good at fundamentals. Here are the fundamental skills delivered at our institute in in classroom based advanced embedded systems course:

    • Algorithms and problem solving
    • Strong C Programming
    • Basic / Core electronics
    • Optimisation
