VLSI technology has taken the electronics and the information technology sector with storm. Thanks to VLSI, our processors, computers, mobile phones and other electronic accessories have become real fast. Add to that the advantage that now things and equipment are way lighter and cheaper than they used to be some years ago. The semiconductor industry is booming as technology is making such electronic devices more and more compact with enhanced reliability. With costs spiralling downwards, more and more applications are coming up in this field. A course in VLSI design is thus very useful in equipping yourself with skills in semiconductor chip design, embedded systems design, manufacturing of integrated circuits and so on.
Eligibility and course duration
B.E/B.Tech in streams such as electronics & communication, electronics & instrumentation, electronics & electrical, control engineering and other related fields. Most admissions are through entrance exams or GATE scores.
Duration of this postgraduate course is 2 years.
More about the course
Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technology is instrumental in design of large computer chips, microprocessors and ICs. Through this course you get to learn about VLSI design, the designing principles and art of manufacturing of the silicon chips. By getting exposed to various designing software, you are able to understand the designing fundamentals of complex digital systems. Through hands-on practical and workshops you get to enhance your skills in designing semiconductor devices and integrated circuits.
