1. Why a course in VLSI ? Isn’t MTech VLSI good enough ?
Currently there is a glaring skill gap between what is imparted in MTech VLSI program and what industry needs. Earlier this skill gap used to be filled by the industry during internship or initial job period. Now, due to changing business conditions the industry is unable to support skill development. Therefore preference is being given to experienced engineers or freshers with adequate skills.
2. For whom is this course best suited ?
This course is best suited for MTech VLSI students – 2 years of VLSI oriented coursework and labs provides good exposure to VLSI, so that the remaining skill gap can be filled by us
3. Should BTech’s opt for this course ?
VLSI being a core competency type of job needs more skills and maturity. Those levels are typically not achieved during BTech. BTech has a wide variety of courses and in our experience does not give sufficient focus, depth or prominence to VLSI. Consequently, more training time is required, probably a 1 year course would be sufficient. But if a Btech student has sufficient background skills for VLSI then we are ready to impart the requisite skills through our courses.

5. How important are Communication Skills for VLSI?
Communication skills and presentation skills are very important for VLSI engineers at all levels. VLSI is very interactive and methodical process. Design ideas and status updates have to be given in high quality presentation for effectiveness. VLSI community itself constitutes people spread all over the world. Because of all these factors, communication skills are extremely important
