After completing my BE in electronics and telecommunication I started searching for an embedded company. Almost a month passed and none of the embedded companies who were requiring freshers would not select me or call me for an interview. I was totally clueless, I have worked on a number of good projects in my college then too I was failing to join a good embedded company. Then I realized that if an embedded company demands for a fresher they would expect that the candidate would have a good knowledge and hands on experience on various controllers like ARM, Cortex, Raspberry pi or PIC , and C language which is mandatory.
I started searching for a course which would cover almost everything that the company primarily demands. After a lot of research I came across BICARD INSTITUTE. They were providing a post diploma in embedded systems which included all the important modules required by the embedded industries.
It was one of my Life's best decision of joining Bicard Institute. The teachers are very Supportive and are always there to help you with each and every problem you face with the concepts or with any technical issues you face during the project.Talking about the job opportunities provided by this institute, it all depends on you. You will be scheduled for an interview in an embedded company after completing 4-5 months of your course (the company may be a startup or a well established company)and you will be selected according to your performance in the interview.
Overall the Institute will provide you with all the facilities and resources which will improve your skills in the
embedded field.

I completed my 4 months diploma with BICARD. One thing that i liked about the institute is that everyone here gets their own space. They not only focus on your strengths but also give time to work on weakness.
