The program curriculum is aimed at offering course on VLSI and Embedded System Design. The theoretical foundation is built through courses like Digital VLSI design, High speed VLSI design, Low power VLSI Design, Analog and mixed mode design, system on chip design. . The program also offers strong knowledge and practical skills in developing embedded solutions on varied platforms such as FPGA, Advanced microcontrollers and processors. The students learn to implement real time embedded systems. The designers gain practical knowledge through mini and major projects in both VLSI and Embedded system design domains. The Semiconductor technology, specially the VLSI chip design has been developing at a very fast rate and today it has reached nanometer scale. The miniaturization and 3D devices have enabled placing over one billion gates on a chip. The advances in VLSI have resulted in a compact, highly reliable and fast electronics systems. These advances in VLSI have moved from integrated circuits to System on Chip. The designers have a very big challenge to design such a chip in highly competitive market. Hence, there is urgent need to produce quality engineers who will be able to create new chip ideas, design new VLSI chips and also Embedded systems.. The practice includes skill development in both Front end & Back end designs, verification and testing.
