Platform Validation is an entry level job, where it helps you to work on basic fundamentals of embedded and digital technology.  By completing this course you are eligible and can certainly aim for the roles such as system validation engineer, Firmware debug Engineer, platform test engineer etc.

The primary goal of systems engineering (SE) is to develop a solution that meets the needs and requirements of stakeholders. Validation is the process by which engineers ensure that the system will meet these needs and requirements. The companies like Intel, Qualcomm, AMD, Apple, Samsung, Sony, HP, Dell and a number of BIOS and motherboard makers on it.

Each product has to be validated according to the specification and optimal performance that is designed for. This course mainly focused on learning basic fundamentals of processor architecture, how system works in different scenario and testcases that can run against the specifications.

In order to validate and check the specified working condition of the system against different aspects the test engineer should run different test cases, where we can measure and validate. For all these it is required to be skilled in using specialized tools where it helps to run different test cases to validate.

eTech Prowess offers 8 week of platform validation job oriented course as per the specific requirements of the clients. This course is designed to offer real-time industry training & exposure to the candidates before getting into the specific project in a client location, thereby bridging the gap for attaining the required skill sets. This will also help to be in a less competitive arena and shape up a career in a niche domain.

This course serves the interests of practicing embedded engineers as well as those engineers planning to enter into the core embedded development field. The course content of this Program is given and approved by the clients.
