Mahindra University offers an M. Tech. degree program in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems. This will be a two-year program where you will be involved in VLSI Design, Advanced Computer Architecture, Advanced Algorithms in Design Automation, Machine Learning for VLSI Design, Low Power VLSI Design, Logic Synthesis, Testability and Design for Testability, Logic Synthesis, and Physical Verification Flows, Device and Process simulation of semiconductor devices.
Mahindra University has recently opened a new laboratory facility that will give students the opportunity to use the latest design automation software from the leading EDA company Synopsys. This lab will be made available to all M. Tech. students to learn using the entire suite of tools from Architectural Design all the way to Physical Verification tools such as are Design Compiler, ICC2, PrimeTime, StarRCXT, Sentaurus TCAD (Device and Process simulation of semiconductor devices, interconnect modeling and extraction). Students will only be limited by their creativity and initiative for the types of designs they can develop using the automation provided by these tools.
Students will have the opportunity to learn analog/digital full custom circuit design using Cadence EDA Virtuoso with Technologies like UMC 65nm, GPDK 45, 90 and 180nm. Cadence tools such as Assura, Innovus, Incisive, Genus are also available to learn circuit level physical design and verification, gate level Physical design and functional simulation, synthesis and pre-layout timing analysis.
Students of the M. Tech. program can expect to work with prospective employers such as Intel, Qualcomm, Synopsys, Broadcom, AMD, NVidia, Apple, TSMC, Global Foundries, Samsung, and many other companies that are in the semiconductor design or manufacturing and are having difficulty in finding talent to meet their needs.
