School of VLSI Technology

About the School

The School was established in July 2006 starting with a flagship course of M-Tech (VLSI Design) with an intake of 12 students. There was a special initiative from the Ministry of IT, Govt. of India with a Special Manpower Development Project (Phase II) for the necessary help to establish School. The need to integrate into the efforts of scientists and engineers working with different fields of microelectronics and semiconductors devices has been the primary motivation of the creation of this school.  

The research and education at School of VLSI Technology is closely associated with industry and several other primary academic Institutions of repute with an aim to foster cutting edge research and establishes the School as one of the pronounced leaders in the field of VLSI and Microelectronics.

In the School of VLSI Technology, we have sufficient latest VLSI tools and hardware in our VLSI and Embedded systems Laboratories. The UG/PG/Doctoral students from Information Technology/Computer Science/Electronic Engg./Electrical Engg. are getting exposure to these industry-standard tools and equipment. In eastern India, only two or three universities/institutes have this type of laboratory.

VLSI is an interdisciplinary field involving various aspects of electrical, communications, computer science, information technology, semiconductor physics, and materials science, the SOVLSIT closely collaborates with other departments within BESU and other reputed academic institutions in both India and abroad to cater to the needs of the engineers in the making. Faculty members of this Institute are also running a number of industry and Govt. funded research projects with active participation of SOVLSIT. A number of tools have been developed to carry out the VLSI research. About 8 Ph.D. theses have been completed during the last five years in the field of VLSI design and test. Another seven students have already been registered for a PhD in this area.

M.Tech (VLSI Design) course under the SMDP-II project was started during the academic session 2006-2007 and continues to be a sought after program of the institute. Students of SOVLSIT have established their credentials through recruitment of international VLSI Design Companies and selection in Ph.D. admission to different research laboratories/ IIT/IISC/ISI/Foreign Universities.

About the Ph.D. program

The PhD. programs are postgraduate research oriented programs. The scholar works in an area of his/her interest under the supervision of a faculty member. The scholar has to obtain a minimum number of credits by taking courses. The highlight of the program is the independent research work taken by scholar, leading to a dissertation at the end of the program. The average duration of a PhD. program is between four to five years.
