VLSI Project And Training At Ahmedabad

Chip design in India has been identified as a prominent industry to support the already achieved development in IT field. With growing design houses day by day, a large pool of highly skilled individuals is needed to meet this demand. But, a potential gap was evident in the expectations of the industry and the output from academic institutions.

Realizing this need for trained manpower, we had launched a Certificate in Digital VLSI Design with emphasis on Digital CMOS circuit design, VLSI design flows, verification and testing including a minor and a major project. This course will be effective in providing potential engineers with exposure to both front-end and back-end processes in VLSI Design.

At Ahmedabad few institutions are offering courses in VLSI Front-end designing with following course contents.
