M.Tech program in VLSI & Embedded System Design

Hyderabad|India|October'2011: In an era where industry-ready talent is rarely produced by educational institutes, RV-VLSI Design Center, JSS Mahavidyapeetha and Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) join hands to offer a first-of-its kind M.Tech program in VLSI & Embedded System Design, aimed at enhancing the employability of candidates.

The M.Tech program is meant for fresh engineering graduates and working professionals, planning a career shift from IT services to core jobs in product companies. Unlike the IT services or BPOs, a career in VLSI & Embedded System Design companies, mandates thorough understanding of design concepts, technology exposure and current industry trends. However, not all these skills are imparted in academics or at work.

“The M.Tech program is centered around the Deep Submicron Technology and prepares students to meet the design challenges of the semiconductor and VLSI industry. Professionals with vast experience from the semiconductor domain will use industry standard Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools to deliver the course”, said Venkatesh Prasad, CEO, RV-VLSI in a press note issued in Hyderabad city.

The participating institutes have ensured the best of the infrastructure, including an exclusive powerful data centre catering to industry standard processing needs and runtimes. The candidates will have access to industry standard tools, technology specific Process Design Kit, standard cells and macro cells. Field Program Gate Array (FPGA), Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) and full custom design methodologies will be dealt in great detail.

In the business parlance, the Time To Market (TTM) is critical for the success of a product. Similarly, how quickly a new employee adapts to the company’s objectives to become productive is equally important. The M.Tech enables candidates to think like professionals to overcome design challenges and align their work culture with that of the company.

Salient Features:
• Technology subjects taught by industry professionals with real world examples
• 4th semester projects administered in-house by RV-VLSI
• Convenient timing to suite working professionals and students
• Over 400 hours of hands-on learning experience using EDA software used in industry under expert supervision

Students with degrees in BE/B.Tech, in Computer Sciences, Electronics, Telecommunications, IT, ISE and Electrical, MSc (CSc), MSc (IT), are eligible for the M.Tech program. Classes for the first batch commences from November first week. While the first and fourth semesters will be conducted at RV-VLSI, Bangalore, the second and third semesters will be at the JSS Academy of Technical Education, Bangalore. Classes will be held during the evenings.

Electronic devices are getting miniaturized every day. VLSI and Embedded Systems design have major role in the evolution of next generation products. From a mobile phone to a traffic signal, microprocessors have become omnipresent. VLSI and Embedded Systems Design offer exciting career growth informed Prof. B. G. Sangameshwar, Principal, Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, Mysore.

Rashtreeya Vidyalaya (RV) Group of Educational Institutions, managed by the Rashtreeya Sikshana Samiti Trust (RSST), has been pioneering education. “This new partnership will create talent for future world-beating products. I am sure that candidates, who acquire this M.Tech will be superior to their contemporaries in all respects,” said Dr. M. K. Panduranga Setty, President, RSST.

The IGNOU will award the M.Tech degree to students. “This is not a distance education program, but regular flexi-time course. We realized the need for such a program in the absence of adequate resources for teaching and imparting the industry-mandated skillsets. This program will create a high-end workforce, which will be an asset to any company,” stated Prof. K. Subramanian, Director ACIIL-IGNOU, New Delhi.
