M.Tech – VLSI Design

Programme Overview

Duration: 2 Years | Programme Code: 020304

M. Tech. VLSI Design programme aims to impart knowledge of VLSI system design covering algorithms, hardware description languages, system architectures, physical designs, verification techniques, simulation & synthesis, low power design techniques etc. The recent advancements in VLSI design have enabled most of the systems to become compact & reliable and to deliver data at high speed. The students will get an opportunity to participate in projects related to design of low power VLSI systems, optimization of digital circuits, and large area flexible electronics.

Programme Educational Objectives

  • The graduates will become professionals equipped with the knowledge of VLSI/nanometer scale IC and ASIC design methodologies.
  • The graduates will be exposed to the complexities and design methodologies of current and advanced IC design technologies.
  • The graduates will work and communicate effectively in inter-disciplinary environment, either independently or in a team, and demonstrate leadership qualities.
  • The graduates will engage in life-long learning and professional development through self-study, continuing education or professional and doctoral level studies.
