Real-time embedded systems have become an integral part of our technological and social space. But is the engineering profession equipped with the right knowledge to develop those systems in ways dictated by the economic and safety aspects? Likely yes. But the knowledge is fragmented and scattered among different engineering disciplines and computing sciences. Seldom anyone of us has the clear picture of the whole. If so, then parts of it are at an abstract level. That poses a question whether the academic system provides education in a way holistic enough to prepare graduates to embark on the development of real-time embedded systems, frequently complex and imposing safety requirements. How many electrical and computer engineering ...
