Overview

Graduate Certificate in Embedded Systems Development (Optional Co-op)

Embedded Systems Development (ESD) is a four-semester graduate certificate program at Conestoga College, including a one-semester exploration of career management or an optional co-op in the embedded systems industry. 

The program aims to provide the student with a solid understanding of the embedded systems industry and gain hands-on skills in the development (design and implementation) of hardware and software for embedded systems.

The program integrates a hands-on, practical approach to augment theoretical knowledge a student may already have coming into the program. 

Applied projects and lab work help prepare graduates for embedded systems development careers. 

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term instead of the Guided Career Management course.
