M.Tech in VLSI and Embedded Systems (Full Time)(M.Tech.)

Course Duration

4 Semesters
(2 Years)

Eligibility Criteria

Passed Bachelor's Degree or equivalent.

Obtained at least 50% marks (45% marks in case of candidates belonging to reserved category) in the qualifying examination.


Electronics and Communication Engineering is an engineering discipline involving the design, development, manufacture, and deployment of electronics and communication systems. It deals with electronic devices, circuits, communication equipment like transmitter, receiver, integrated circuits (IC), analog and digital transmission and reception of data, voice and video, microprocessors, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antennae, and wave progression.

Very Large-Scale Integration (VLSI) system design is the process of creating complex integrated circuits by combining million/billion number of transistors into a single chip, while Embedded Systems have become pervasive across various domains such as automotive, industrial, and communication systems leading to tremendous growth in the application and innovation of networked and high-performance real-time embedded systems.

To sustain the growth rate, organisations in the field of VLSI technology and embedded systems development are in the need of designers, analysts, developers, manufacturing, testing, and marketing engineers as well as managers with a postgraduate degree in VLSI Design and Embedded System sector.

The School of Electronics and Communication Engineering offers M.Tech. in VLSI and Embedded Systems – a postgraduate programme to create motivated, innovative, and creative thinking graduates to fill the roles of electronic engineers who can conceptualise, design, analyse and develop VLSI and Embedded Systems to meet the modern-day requirements.

What Makes The Programme Unique?

Aims to prepare the students to design analog and digital integrated circuits using custom and semi-custom design flow.

The theoretical foundation is built through courses like Digital VLSI design, High-speed VLSI design, Low Power VLSI Design, Analog and Mixed-mode Design, and System on Chip Design.

Practice includes skill development in both front-end and back-end designs, verification, and testing.

The programme also offers strong knowledge and practical skills in developing embedded solutions on varied platforms such as FPGA, Advanced microcontrollers, and processors.

Students learn to implement real-time embedded systems.

The designers gain practical knowledge through mini and major projects in both VLSI and Embedded system design domains.
