About Programme

Master of Technology (M.Tech) in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems is a 2-year full-time postgraduate program, recognized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and offered by the Visvesvaraya Technological University.
M. Tech in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems is comprised of Theory, Laboratory, Technical Seminar, Internship and Project. The theory subjects are appropriate to suit the current core industry needs, starting from fundamental of MOSFETs, Analog and Mixed Mode VLSI design to ASIC circuit design and system on chip design. Students develop assembly language and embedded ‘C’ coding to explore ARM- Cortex M4 with the support of Keil uVision for different applications such as buzzer, temperature sensor, LCD display, stepper motor etc.

why bnmit

Why BNMIT for this course ?

The Course M.Tech [VLSI Design and Embedded System] is offered by department of Electronics and Communication Engineering since 2010. There are 10 Doctorates and 15 senior faculty who are having rich experience in industry, research, and academics. They will be able to fulfill the needs of the VLSI and Embedded aspirants. The candidates will get the proper guidance from the industry experts to do their projects, since the industry expert is also associated as adjunct faculty and will have direct interaction with the candidates. The Training and Placement department provides the necessary skill set, which helps them to join the core industry.
The Department has well established laboratories and a research centre with hardware and software facilities for the student. Library of the college & department has a collection of books, magazines, journals, e-Journals and other useful databases. Facilities for internet browsing and e-services are also available in the library for the convenience of students.


Programme Curriculum

This course is best suited for candidates who are interested in circuits, circuit design, and as the name suggests, very large-scale integration circuits. This is an integrated circuit system which is less than 50-year old in its development and hence is an ever-evolving field of technology, with newer circuit designs being envisioned and executed every day. This field of study has emerged from a Material Science and Electrical Engineering. This field can be quite challenging as it requires candidates to not just be proficient in their skills but also have a urge for research and innovation in order to research existing physical devices and design new circuit designs which might be more efficient. The course is spread over the four semesters, the details of the curriculum is given as follows:
