Institutions have been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to provide two new engineering and technology diploma and undergraduate degrees.
Diploma in IC fabrication as well as BTech or BE in electronic engineering are among the courses available (VLSI design and technology).
The decision was taken with the goal of establishing a semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem under the Program for Development of Semiconductor and Display, as well as preparing Indian aspirants to be “market-ready.”
‘With reference to the Cabinet-approved Program for Development of India’s Semiconductor and Display Manufacturing Ecosystem.’ The official circular of the AICTE stated, “It is pertinent that India’s aspirations to set up a semiconductors and display manufacturing ecosystem would require market-ready, talent pool in the field of semiconductors and display, which ultimately’ would require a clear roadmap of capacity building.”
According to the council, interested and qualifying universities may begin offering these courses after following the AICTE’s standards. The council was informed that the model curriculum for the courses would be published soon.
