Professional Development Course on VLSI System on a Chip Design (Full-time)

Sandeepani offers the 16-week full time (Monday - Friday) Professional Development Course for recent graduates and post-graduates in Electronics/Electrical/Telecommunication engineering. This program is specifically designed with an objective to provide a sound platform for the students and prepare them for a successful career in the fields of VLSI Design and verification with FPGAs.
The PDC offers the right blend of classroom teaching, quality hands-on training from 'concept-to-project', covering design methodology using industry standard tools and practices. The course includes a project work as well.
Placement assistance is provided to those who complete all modules of this course and a pre-placement test.

Course Duration: 16 Weeks
