Summary

binaryLawrence Technological University’s Bachelor of Science in Embedded Software Engineering was designed in close consultation with automotive OEMs and first tier suppliers. LTU is the first university in the nation to offer a degree in embedded software engineering.

Embedded software engineers design and maintain software systems in embedded controllers that work behind the scenes in complex machinery.

Embedded software appears on devices not typically thought of as computers. Think of your phone, car, refrigerator, and even your washing machine. Without embedded software, you couldn’t text your friends, use your vehicle’s GPS, or set your washing machine on the gentle cycle. Since most manufactured products now employ embedded computers, software engineering is one of the fastest growing fields in engineering; engineers skilled in embedded software engineering are uniquely valued.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of software developers is projected to grow 22 percent into the next decade, much faster than the average for all occupations. Software developer employment levels in the SE Michigan area are among the highest in the United States, at 5.58 per 1,000 jobs. And according to economicmodeling.com, the projected growth for computer software engineers in Michigan is between 7 and 9 percent, making software engineering one of the fastest growing employment sectors.
