Program Description

This program provides a unique opportunity for students to study the underlying concepts and practice of embedded systems in both a collaborative classroom setting and within the industry.  A majority of the classroom learning comes from hands-on, team-based lab work where students build embedded solutions that parallel the everyday systems they interact with in real life. UT students work in teams with local students from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad, resulting in a culturally and intellectually stimulating experience. Students complete company projects with leading institutions in the high-tech industry and spend a business day shadowing an industry professional.

Students gain valuable experience in the emerging world of cutting-edge technology outside of the U.S. Hyderabad has been at the forefront of India’s technological surge over the past two decades with significant presence from leading global firms such as Microsoft, Google and Qualcomm.  Hyderabad is the fourth most populous city in India with a complex history and diverse Indian culture. Students experience this unique city through local excursions, cultural activities, guest lectures and visits to local NGOs.
