MTech in VLSI


MTech in VLSI (Very-Large-Scale Integration) is a postgraduate-level programme in the field of Electronics and Computer Engineering. The course focuses on the design and development of integrated circuits and systems, including computer-aided design (CAD) tools, simulation, and verification techniques. The programme covers semiconductor device physics, IC fabrication technology, digital and analogue circuit design, computer-aided design tools, VLSI system design, digital and analogue circuit design, semiconductor device physics, and layout design. It also includes hands-on training in the use of VLSI design tools and the implementation of VLSI systems.

Completing an MTech in VLSI can help you achieve professional success by providing you with the knowledge and skills needed to design and develop advanced electronic systems. Graduates of the programme are well-suited for careers in VLSI design, embedded systems, semiconductor manufacturing, and computer-aided design. They are also well-prepared for further research in the field.

Graduates with this degree can work in roles such as VLSI design engineer, IC design manager, or VLSI research and development engineer. They can work in companies like Intel, Texas Instruments, and Samsung. Additionally, MTech in VLSI graduates can pursue research and teaching positions in universities and research institutions.

Career Opportunities

VLSI design: Graduates of the programme can work as VLSI designers, developing integrated circuits and systems for various applications, such as computer processors, memory chips, and wireless communication devices.

Embedded systems: Graduates can work in embedded systems, designing and developing intelligent devices and systems that include embedded processors, sensors, and communication interfaces.

Semiconductor manufacturing: Graduates can work in semiconductor manufacturing companies, where they can be involved in the production of integrated circuits and other semiconductor devices.

Industry Connect

The department conducts regular industrial talks delivered by domain experts from the industry. Industrial experts take some courses either by themselves or along with our faculty. After the first year of study, the students are encouraged to opt for the industrial internship for a maximum period of one year. Students who are interested in the internship need to attend the interview as and when the internship opening arises.
The department works closely with the industries which play a part in curriculum development, delivery and other industrial training.


The MTech (VLSI) students interested in Placements need to register with the Corporate Relations and Career Services (CR & CS) office. The CR & CS department will offer the required placement-related trainings.

For MTech (VLSI) first batch (2022-2024), placements are going on...
