I am an electronic engineering student and wish to purse a career as a software engineer. I still have 2 more years of my degree left. I was wondering which modules should I select to improve my chances of landing a software engineering job once I graduate university.
So far these are my module choice for this academic year(2021-2022): 1- Embedded Systems: Learning C++ and designing embedded systems. 2- Digital Control: Using MATLAB/Simulink for PID controller design. 3- Electronic system design with FPGAs: Learning and implementing digital circuits using VHDL. 4- Power Electronics: Learning about brushless motors, buck converters and other high voltage machines.
The other option I have is choosing Digital Instrumentation module over Power electronics. In that module I would learn about programming in C and implementing temperature sensors in digital devices. What do you think?
Is there any advice you guys can give me which would help me land a software engineering job post graduation?(I live in England, UK)
