While Computer Science and Bachelor of Electrical/Electronic Engineering degrees provided plenty of students with broadly suitable backgrounds, companies were spending too long and too much money upskilling new recruits with the necessary application-specific knowledge. Meanwhile, students keen to progress more quickly sought automotive-specific experience and understanding that would help their job applications stand out.
Skillicon Technologies now bridges this gap, providing a Basics and Advanced course that trains students in areas such as sensors and actuators, ADAS, CAN and diagnostics. Simultaneously, it provides techno-commercial consultation to automotive and embedded system companies, helping them with testing, staffing, recruitment and training.
“We think our tuition equates to one to two years’ experience of on-the-job training, giving candidates and their employers a significant advantage over those without additional training,” comments Nirmalkumar. “What’s more, because we use well-known tools, candidates are ‘up and running’ in the ECU development and testing departments that are increasingly coming onstream here,” he adds.
