Industrial Processes Applied to Embedded Systems Curriculum
This paper presents a modality to shorten the gap existing between the industrial requirements regarding the qualifications of future engineers and the actual academic provided education. The authors present the case of Embedded System laboratory developed at Computer and Software Engineering Department, Faculty of Automation and Computers, "Politehnica" University of Timisoara, Romania. The results are very encouraging both from students, but also different employers' point of view. Embedded systems industry has become one of the most spread and profitable industries. Actually, the present cars are but a complex computer, aircrafts are relying on a plethora of interconnected computers and so on.
