Also, is there a masters in it?
ravijojila79614dI can say about one of those companies, one project: low lvl c,embedded, programming. Some sort of rtos is involved for sure.
So, I guess rtos and basic concepts like data structures, algos and pointers are a way to start. I always recommend kernighan and ritchie c, idk for rtos.
Any embedded c job could lead you there.
It depends on you how interesting it will be for you, and on your teammates. First one you can experience during learning and decide if it's for you. Teammates you can't predict.
SortOfTested30514dI agree with the other comment. That said, I don't know that I would be interested in working for Cisco, Alcatel and any of the big telcos. They're notoriously fickle and prone to bottom-line oriented attrition. The work you will get will be corporate drudgery. The era of the network admin as career has passed (though it doesn't sound like that's what you're after), the jobs that haven't already been outsourced will be automated before too much longer.
What I will say in regards to networking, and somewhat reflecting the other answer is that the really cool/interesting trending growth areas that are emerging are in the cloud with things like FPGA-based networks and SDNs.
Definitely learn to code if you want a stable career in networking (rust, go, erlang, c). Focus on systems engineering.
