B.Voc. in VLSI Design Skills

VLSI devices are found everywhere in the world today, such as in mobile phones, cameras, laptops and medical devices, etc. So, there is a huge market of VLSI industry throughout the world. Also, VLSI industry will play a key role in the upcoming technical revolutions, like machine learning, automation and IOT. VLSI industry growth in our country is also becoming more promising due to the Government’s new policy to boost electronic industries and to promote domestic manufacturing under the ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ project. Furthermore, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) is also promoting the VLSI domain greatly.
A clear understanding of modern analog and digital CMOS design is crucial for chip manufacturing. Nowadays, almost all systems used in our daily lives are implemented on single Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) chips. MOS transistors and IC fabrications are the backbone of the VLSI design for complex digital systems. Learning the methodology to implement various models for gates and synthesize their physical layouts as well as how to validate complex hardware is of major concern to modern VLSI designer. Hence, it is essential to have requisite skills in critical VLSI design, including fabrication and layout, timing, power minimization, testing and debugging.
The proposed program serves as an introduction to VLSI design fundamentals along with various computer-aided design (CAD) tools and methodologies. The aim is to provide the students a broad base and understanding about the semiconductor industry, enabling them lucrative opportunities in future endeavours. It will give the students a feeling for the basic principles that govern the design of large scale digital ICs. Our main emphasis is to skill the students so that a new VLSI based product can be developed.


VLSI design and technology is an important and essential part ofthe electronics domain. Study of VLSI design and technology is essential for the growth of modern lives. The aim of this program is to make the students skilled in various VLSI design and technology. The proposed program provides an introduction to the design and implementation of VLSI circuits to convey advanced concepts of analog and digital CMOS design. After completing this program, a student will be skilled as follows.

• Be able to be NSQF level 7 certified in at least one job role/ profile in the field of VLSI chip design.
• Be an expert in simulation and layout designing of analog and CMOS simple/complex systems.
