Want to impact how people use technology? Southern’s embedded systems concentration teaches you how to develop computer software and hardware for technology used in everyday life (cell phones, car electronics, tablets, MP3 players, modern appliances, and more). You’ll be ready to design electronic devices and interface with microcontroller-based embedded systems, improve digital camera technology, experiment with robotics, and more—and you’ll put your skills to the test in our hands-on lab.
