M.Tech. (ECE) with specialization - VLSI & Embedded Systems


The VLSI and Embedded Systems M.Tech program will cover the fundamentals and engineering aspect of designing and developing IC based systems. Traditionally VLSI technology has emerged out as a successful conglomeration of two streams: material science and electrical engineering. The state of the art VLSI technology requires research in physical devices as well as novel design and development of electrical circuit. The program will focus on developing hands-on skill of designing semiconductor devices and circuits, architecting systems using embedded components such as, CPU, memory and peripherals. Students will be trained in several topics that cut across different domain, starting from lowermost level of physical devices to the top level of application development.


Program Structure

(Students are also advised to go through the M.Tech. (ECE) specific regulation and PG Regulations to know other requirement of the M.Tech. degree.)

As per M.Tech regulations, a student is required to complete 12 credits (all the courses) from core bucket and 8 credits to get specialization in VLSI and Embedded Systems. Overall 48 credits must be completed to get M.Tech degree with VLSI and Embedded Systems specialization.


Research Areas

  • Low Power Design
  • Network on Chip
  • Computer Architecture
