Realizing the growth of embedded systems in day-to-day life and the need for trained manpower in this promising area, C-DAC has launched a Diploma in Embedded Systems Design (DESD) for Engineers in computers, electronics and IT. Embedded Systems is a unique field, where engineers need to have sound knowledge in hardware and software design. Keeping this aspect in view, C-DAC has designed the diploma giving equal emphasis to hardware and software, enabling engineers to face challenges in the design and development of state of the art embedded systems. The latest curriculum includes a module on wireless embedded systems design, specifically focusing on wireless technologies and Wireless Sensor Networks  (WSN).
