The school is well equipped VLSI and Embedded laboratories of all major with excellent intranet, servers, tools, kits, hardware, and software support.

Each year, many students of the school get selected for higher studies in world’s most reputed Universities and Institutes. The school is equally active in research with many quality publications each year in IEEE, Science direct, ACM, Springer, Wiley etc. For the overall development we also cover the other aspects of life like Health management, moral and ethical development of the students.

 

More about School:

School of VLSI Design and Embedded system was established in Year 2011. The school offers two M.Tech. programs and Ph.D. in the area of VLSI Design and Embedded System Design. School of VLSI Design and Embedded Systems has MoU with Semi-Conductor Laboratory (SCL); an autonomous body under Department of Space, Government of India. Under the MoU two ICs have already been fabricated and two more fabrications are in progress. SMDP projects funded by Meity, Government of India has been executing since 2007. Currently we are having third phase of SMDP projects named as SMDP-C2SD. Under this project, professional VLSI design lab has been established.
