Vector India: A Pioneer in the Embedded Systems Training

Viswanadha Raju Dandu,     FounderAt a Compound Annual Growth Rate(CAGR) of 5.36 percent, the Global Embedded Systems Market is expected to grow from $ 86,898.31 Million in 2019 to $118,902.70 Million by 2025. Some of the major factors driving this market size include the increasing number of research and development activities related to embedded systems, growing demand for advanced driver assistance systems(ADAS) and electromobility solutions for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, rising demand for portable devices such as wearables and the growing usage of multicore processors in military applications. This has further prompted the demand for Embedded Systems Engineer thus simultaneously allowing the growth of companies offering embedded systems courses. The embedded systems course is aimed at providing high quality training to software engineers as well as those who wish to enter this field. In this course, students can learn practical lessons and techniques used to design, implement, integrate and test software used for advanced embedded systems.

Hyderabad-based Vector India is an example of one such institute, a pioneer in the embedded training, India's first ISO 9001:2015 certified institute. With centres in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai, the institute offers comprehensive training program with well-integrated approach to embedded system. The training programs conducted by the institute improve knowledge and efficiency of the students in the field of embedded technology. "Our training programs are designed and developed in the manner to focus on the overall development of the candidates by enhancing their behavioral and technical skills, thereby making them competent for this field", says Viswanadha Raju Dandu.

Vector India has achieved the rare distinction as India's Best Training Institute for Embedded Systems. It could achieve not only by adherence to high quality Embedded Course content, but also by providing genuine and real time Embedded project experience, and placements to its students. "Notably, we rework and revise our Embedded course contents, and create avenues to train and equip our students for actual work situation with the industry. Our realtime projects ensure that students have a high level of proficiency in Embedded technologies, and are job-ready once they are with the corporate”, adds Raju. In a short span of time, Vector India has evolved into a premier training provider, featuring among the best in the country, in training placing students in low-level technologies esp. embedded systems.

Well Designed Academic Program
The primary focus at Vector India is to bridge the gap between industry requirements and students' skill set. This is achieved by following a highly application oriented, participative style of training. So, it is only after understanding the quality and skilled workforce requirements of the industry, that Vector India designs the course content.
The intention of having projects in the academics is to make students implement the concepts learned in the class room into an actual project. Finally, it is the actual implementation of concepts and understanding of actually doing it that helps students meet the industry expectations in the recruitment process in-campus/ off-campus. The project forms a major portion of any technical interview during the recruitment process and hence all aspirants planning to come to Vector for the project guidance/ training program are requested to come mentally prepared to work seriously on the project, as it will have long lasting impact in shaping their career.

Vector is placing its students in companies like ABB India, Ampere Computing, Ciena India, Honeywell, Infineon, Mercedes-Benz, Samsung, Sandisk India, Siemens, and Volvo

"We have precise understanding of the industry expectations and the missing links at the academic level ­the campus placement record of the institute speaks volumes about this. We believe that young engineers can be sensitized onto working in well organized industry environment by taking them through a well planned drill during academic Final project during the course execution," says Raju. The institute executes the academic project by first providing classes on relevant domain of the chosen project, second, discussion of the project concept or principals, third, induction to lab, fourth, final implementation of the project and lastly analysis of the project for interviews.

Since its foundation, Vector India has successfully placed 2150+ students in 630+ core embedded companies in 2021. Vector offers 100 percent Placement Assistance Scholarships and upto 50 percent students are awarded based on our entrance test scores. "One of our students recently got placed with a 15.4 LPA. This has been the highest salary package so far," adds Raju.

Innovative Customized Tools & Processes
"We describe innovation as customized tools/ processes custom made and refined to solve day to day problems currently plaguing the society and country at large," says Raju. Innovations at the grass root level right from agriculture to advanced design or manufacturing are the need of the hour and will help the country gain self reliance and technological strength. It is best if young engineers focus on innovation in the area of their interest and try to implement or execute innovative ideas coming to their mind.

Further, the institute is keen to incubate and nurture ideas that are industry viable(through finding and execution support) and help them grow into profitable ventures Vector's EUREKA­ Innovation & Technology incubation program is one such step in this area to bring out innovation from budding engineers and identify industry viable ideas.

The increasing use of embedded technology in fields like communication and electronics has pushed up demand for candidates trained in this domain. Consequently, it has made hundreds of students to enroll in the institute and gain expertise on such soaring courses. “Our institute takes pride in meeting up the challenges thrown by the evolving industries. Therefore, we undertake programs to impart a talent pool in our aspirants so as to meet the requirements of corporates”, concludes Raju.
