NEW DELHI: All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has launched the curriculum designed for two new programmes – BTech Electronics (VLSI Design and Technology) and Diploma in IC manufacturing. The courses will be uploaded on the AICTE portal. Any AICTE-affiliated college or university or technical institutions may opt to offer these courses.
BTech in Electronics (VLSI Design and Technology) will include Introduction to IC Design and Technology, Digital systems labs, Semiconductor Device Fundamentals, Analog Electronics, Introduction to CMOS processing, Introduction to VLSI Design, Analog IC Design, Statis Timing Analysis, Fabrication and characterization lab and Physics of Electrical engineering materials.
The Diploma in IC Manufacturing will include Introduction to VLSI Fabrication, Semiconductor Fab familiarisation, Electronic Devices and circuits, Clean room technologies, Semiconductor Technology Equipment Maintenance, Allied activities for foundry like safety protocol for foundry, vacuum technology, Industrial automation, Semiconductor packaging and testing, Electronics system assembly or product design and Renewable energy technologies.
Professor T G Sitharam, Chairman, AICTE launched the model curricula on Semiconductor Design and IC Manufacturing for undergraduate and diploma students of technical institutions. He shared his experiences while being a faculty of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and thereafter part of academic administration at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati. He emphasized on the nature of education the institutions are imparting should be interdisciplinary. Besides, he requested the academic institutions to opt for starting new courses in the area of semiconductor domain so as to meet the future manpower needs.
Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw said, "The PM approved the Semicon India program on Jan 1, 2022. In consultation with the Semiconductor industry and all the experts, a curriculum has been developed and today AICTE within the Ministry of Education has launched two new programs."
"First is a BTech program in semiconductors and second is a diploma program in semiconductors. These two programs will help us create a very good semiconductor talent throughout the engineering ecosystem. I would encourage the youngsters, students and industries to participate in the programs," Ashwini Vaishnaw added.
