Message from the EMBS Director:
The EMBS program is a new program and there is no history of students graduating with this degree, recent Penn Masters graduates with an interest in embedded systems have joined the following companies: Analog Devices, Boeing, Ericsson, General Motors, Honda, Honeywell, Intel, Lockheed Martin, Merck, Northrop Grumman, Pfizer, Reliance Industries, Samsung, Siemens, and Toyota.
We would like to emphasize that EMBS program is suitable for students who are interested in technical careers in embedded systems industry (automotive, avionics, consumer electronics, medical devices, defense, as the list above suggests). Students interested in more general computer science education should consider our CIS-MSE program (suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in computer science) or MCIT program (suitable for students without a degree in computer science)
Due to the sequence of course offerings for the EMBS program, candidates should not apply for Spring admission.
