VLSI Training

Training Onsite

We conduct VLSI training programs at the client site. An induction program for fresh engineers to specialized courses; we deliver them at your door step with best of trainers, training material and lab equipment.

Residential National VLSI (Faculty) Development Centre (NVFDC), VNIT, Nagpur

National VLSI (Faculty) Development Centre (NVFDC & NVDC) is an entity born to build the right microelectronics (VLSI) ecosystem in the country by focusing on building the required skills. The mandate was for training the faculty in the technical education institutes of the country. We are now making it available to students who want to improve their VLSI skills and be more in sync with the job market. NVFDC has come about through the feedback of Ministry of HRD Government of India, NPIU, Department of Science & Technology Government of India, IIT, Ministry of IT etc.

The two courses that are currently being run at NVFDC are:

  • Advance Diploma in VLSI (ADV); this is for faculty member sponsored by their respective institutes; this is open to Diploma, Undergraduate and PG faculty members. Admission application are available every month. This is run under National VLSI Faculty Development Centre (NVFDC).

  • PG Diploma in VLSI; this is available to final year or undergraduate engineers/B.Sc./MCA./M.S. This is run under National VLSI Development Centre (NVDC).   

All the courses are residential, so as to create an ecosystem that enables students to focus on learning and hands-on experience at the laboratory. The laboratory has all the tools available with the Industry and is one of the countries best labs for VLSI training, teaching & research. It is a state of art high technology VLSI laboratory and a star hostel facility with hygienic and nutritious food.   

 The faculty members, who will teach at NVFDC, are some of the best in the world today. The delivery of the course will be at Nagpur; Nagpur is in the center of the country and easily accessible by road as well as air.

We work with all the top global chip design companies, and top technical institutes have deployed our higher education offering like IITs, NITs, JNTU etc in the Education space. Our tools helping defense build indigenous chips. We are committed to improve the electronics ecosystem in India.

Our learning as an organization makes us a good bridge between Industry and Academia. This brings substantial tangible as well as non-tangible benefits to the  students sponsored by self, State Government, University/Institute; and helps them produce engineer’s and academicians inline with the job market as well as industry.
