Microelectronics & VLSI Design
M-Tech program’s Course
Course and Project Credit: The core and soft-core courses are listed in the table below. Most of the courses have a serious lab component. 1 credit of lab component is 6 hours of lab training per week. The credit distribution is summarized as follows:
- Core courses (18 credits): There are 6 courses (mix of 2:1 and 3:0 credits) that are mandatory for M. Tech students.
- Soft Core (9 credits): There are total 9 soft core courses, which directly fall under the scheme of Microelectronics and VLSI Design. Students must credit minimum 3 courses from this pool.
- Electives (9 credits): The remaining 9 credits of coursework may be completed by crediting courses listed in the Scheme of Instructions. It’s worth highlighting that our faculties offer over 10 different relevant courses, other than what is listed below, from which students can fulfil the elective requirements.
- Project (28 credits): This is a 1-year project (2 semesters including the summer term).
