The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, has recently launched a new PG level advanced certification programme in Micro and Nanoelectronics to equip the upcoming generation of semiconductor experts, who are prepared to benefit from the industry’s rapid expansion currently being experienced by the semiconductor sector, as per an official statement.
The programme is launched in collaboration with TalentSprint, a global EdTech company and market leader in transformative deep tech programmes to meet the growing demand of semiconductor/VLSI professionals, or professionals having deeper semiconductor knowledge to interface with any electronics industry. The curriculum of the programme has been curated by MSDLab, Department of Electronics Systems Engineering (DESE) at IISc Bangalore. It claims to offer industry-oriented training to professionals curated from the Semiconductor and Nanoelectronics experts and their vast industrial research experience. DESE is also known for its M-Tech in Microelectronics and VLSI Design programme, which is the most sought-after M-Tech programme among Indian engineering graduates and GATE toppers.
The programme instructors are a team of leading researchers and experts from MSDLab, led by Professor Mayank Shrivastava, having around 50 patents, around 25 national and international awards and 200 research publications to his credit. This group also comes with vast industry experience and collaborates with over 5 leading semiconductor industries at any point in time.
Speaking about the programme, Programme Director, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Professor Mayank Shrivastava, said:
The field of Micro and Nanoelectronics is the enabler of next-generation semiconductor technologies which is the heart of today’s faster, sleeker, light weight and energy efficient systems. This is also the backbone of upcoming neuromorphic and quantum technologies. Keeping the immense potential of this ever-growing field in mind, this is the right time for professionals to gain a deep insight into designing, modeling, characterizing, and developing semiconductor technology and tap into the promising opportunities that this sector offers. Soon the semiconductor sector will be a trillion-dollar industry and one must not miss this opportunity.
The state-of-the-art curriculum, designed by an eminent IISc Faculty, will help participants gain industry-oriented insights and knowledge into every aspect of semiconductor technology, VLSI design basics and micro and nanoelectronics, to help them grow in this field. This programme will also help professionals and young engineers in the peripheral fields, design industry to interface better with the semiconductor professionals.
IISc aims to be among the world’s foremost academic institutions through the pursuit of excellence in research and promotion of innovation by offering world-class education to train future leaders in science and technology and by applying science and technology breakthroughs for India’s wealth creation and social welfare.
