Program Overview

Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) Circuit Design is the process of designing a large computer chip (more specifically, an integrated circuit, or IC), using computer-aided design (CAD) tools on a workstation or a personal computer (PC). The course demands learning the principles of VLSI design, designing and fabricating the state of-the- rt VLSI chips, understanding the complete design flow and expertise to design CMOS chips for industrial requirements.

The curriculum focuses on employing hierarchical design methods and understanding the design issues at the various levels of hierarchy. Students are exposed to various design software in this program. Also, they learn to design, simulate, implement and test complex digital systems using FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). The main objectives of this course are to analyze the electrical and design characteristics of transistors, gates and to study the issues and methodologies involved in the integration of these devices into complex high-performance systems.

With recent and rapid upsurge in the areas like hardware software co-design, architectures for machine intelligence, network on chip etc. the programme is designed to cater to the needs in producing engineers trained in both hardware and software areas bridging the gap between the academia and industry. Students will be trained in several topics that cut across different domain, starting from lowermost level of physical devices to the top level of application development.

Students can pursue career opportunities in diverse fields such as Process Industry, Manufacturing Industry Consumer Electronics, Communication Networks and Automation Industries.
