Microelectronics and Semiconductor Technologies are enabling the creation of next-generation semiconductors, making systems faster, smaller and more energy efficient. With possibilities to improve and even revolutionize many technologies, Microelectronics is delivering immense value to IT, medicine, transportation, energy, food safety, environmental science, and many others. Some of the important developments listed here indicate the accelerating Microelectronics and semiconductor technologies industry growth.
This is the right time for professionals to gain a deep insight into designing, modeling, characterisation and development of semiconductor technology and tap into the promising opportunities that this sector offers.
The majority of professionals in the VLSI and semiconductor industry are often trained in VLSI design or circuit design principles, and in their design practice, they consider semiconductor devices as a black box. These design practices, which require one to follow thousands of design rules, don’t involve a first principal understanding of semiconductor technology.
This gap originates from the undergraduate and postgraduate training given at the majority of places, which lacks rigorous training on micro and nanoelectronics and device as well as semiconductor technology principles. While the black box approach may have worked for several generations, given the way technology is advancing, it is going to be difficult for working professionals to survive in this industry without understanding the fundamentals of devices and semiconductor technologies and the principles of micro and nanoelectronics.
The other aspect is the push for semiconductor fabs and production around the world. There will be around fifty new fabs in the next 5 years, possibly even more, and each fab would require thousands of semiconductor professionals. This means there will be demand for over one lakh new professionals in the next five years who understand semiconductor technologies. To enable professionals to navigate this change, IISc, in association with TalentSprint, has launched this online programme, where aspirants can enhance their knowledge and build capabilities to thrive in the new semiconductor era.
IISc offers India’s most sought-after M-Tech programme on Microelectronics and Semiconductor Technologies and VLSI Design. This programme is jointly designed and delivered by the Department of Electronics Systems Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Communications Engineering. A majority of the top GATE-scoring candidates apply for this programme. It offers research-oriented training curated from the expert industry and research experiences. What professionals will learn during this PG Level Advanced Certification Programme is a significant subset of what is covered in IISc’s regular M-Tech programme.
This LIVE and interactive online programme has the potential to strengthen fundamentals, inform new industry developments and bridge the knowledge gap. Participants attending this programme can benefit from the following -
