Abstract—The growth in India's embedded industry is not just a dream - A ten-fold increase in talent is expected to facilitate the embedded systems industry-from a current 60,000 professionals to over 6 lakhs people by 2015. Hence, it’s a challenge for universities to fill the gap between education and industry. As more engineers are required by industry, more students should be taught the embedded system development skills whereas with the fast progress of the industry, the embedded system curriculum should being updated in order to catch up with the industry. This paper elaborates the status of PG programme on M.E-Embedded Systems Technologies in South Indian Universities by analyzing the relationship between courses and curriculum and the growing impact of embedded industries in Indian semiconductor hub.
