The Real Time Embedded Linux Systems program is the flagship program of the company and one of the most highly demanded programs in the industry today.
Every year, there is a demand for thousands of positions in the field of Real Time & Embedded Linux, and there is a significant need for employees with practical knowledge and experience.
Since 2007, over 3,500 students have participated in this Bootcamp, with about 87% of graduates finding employment. Furthermore, 100% of those who completed a final project in the development department secured jobs!

The Real Time Embedded Linux program provides students with the knowledge and tools required in the industry to integrate as Real Time Embedded Linux Systems developers (embedded computer systems).

It is a comprehensive program, consisting of 12 different modules that comprise the field. Among these are C and C++ for Embedded Systems, RT-Concepts, Embedded Linux, Kernel Device Drivers (see the complete list below).

The syllabus for the program was designed after numerous meetings with tech companies in the industry, with a focus on current requirements.

The course imparts both theoretical and practical knowledge, specialized tools, and topics relevant to embedded computer system designers/real-time programming. It covers all stages of development in Embedded Systems, whether it is bare metal systems or Embedded Linux/FreeRTOS/SafeRTOS systems, using ARM Cortex-M/Cortex-A-based development boards.

All stages from system initialization (boot-loader upload) to running user space programs above the operating system, resource usage, objects, and services (system calls) of real-time operating systems, multi-threading, synchronization, writing Linux Kernel Modules (LKM's), Board Support Package (BSP), device drivers, using debugging tools, planning and implementing Embedded RT applications, communication protocols, algorithms, code optimization, and IoT.

As students come from diverse backgrounds, we offer introductory courses as needed. You are welcome to reach out to us and take an exam (free of charge) to assess which topics require training.

The course includes all the necessary material and will culminate in the following:

  • Final project — students will apply the cumulative knowledge they have learned to develop a final project, independently and with the guidance of the instructor.
  • Practical training accompanied by the company's dev professionals — hands-on training where students will integrate into the development of projects under the guidance of the company developers.
  • At the end of the program, the placement division will collaborate with the candidate to prepare a professional resume, and the placement process in the field will commence.

Real Time Embedded Linux Program Structure

In order to prepare you in the best possible way and cover all the required areas in the field, the Real Time Embedded Linux course is divided into two main parts:

  • Embedded Bare-Board — Developing embedded computer systems without an operating system or with microcontroller-based operating systems such as Threadx, Micrium, FreeRTOS.
  • Embedded Linux — Developing on the Linux operating system, focusing on Linux Kernel and Device Drivers, as well as Linux User Space Programming.

Throughout these two parts, you will learn various courses including C programming, ARM Architecture, Networking, Python, Linux Kernel, Linux course, and more.

Our Goal:
Equip you with comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge in the field and guide you all the way to the contract signing stage with excellent and leading companies in the tech industry.
