PhD VLSI Design

Are you an M.Tech or M.E. in VLSI Design and now looking for a suitable PhD program? Want to get into high profile research in designing of chips and semiconductor technology? Find here the necessary details of the course PhD VLSI Design and the job prospects.

Course Name: PhD VLSI Design
Stream: Engineering
Course Category: Computer
Duration: 3 - 5 Years


VLSI or Very Large Scale Integration has taken the semiconductor world by storm. It has been because of VLSI technology that integrated circuits with thousands of transistors in a single chip have revolutionized the electronics, telecommunication and the computer industry. The microprocessor, the brain of a computer is in fact a VLSI device and is responsible for controlling all the operations and processes inside the computer. VLSI technology has made it possible to integrate different functions in one single unit and thus reduction in size but increase n functionality. There have been rapid advances in the field of VLSI technology. A number of complex operations in the field of electronics, computing, telecommunications and control operations have been possible because of VLSI.
