Moreover, improved VLSI technologies will transform the dynamics of working across industries.

The worldwide demand for efficient performance that is driven by telecommunications, the internet, smart networking and cutting-edge human interfaces necessitate the requirement of proficient professionals in VLSI Design.


Career Scope:

VLSI Design is recently one of the fastest growing sectors of engineering in India. While traditional Electronics Engineering disciplines deal with a broader aspect of different domains related to it, VLSI Design is hinged on the process of creating an IC by installing millions of transistors into a single chip. Emerging industries in the modern era is trying to strengthen their R & D along with production. As a result, semiconductor companies that could facilitate the design and manufacture of core based products are emphasising on collaborative work projects. The strength of core-based design aligned with network application is the potential to grow performance to meet bandwidth demand. Moreover, dramatic improvements in weight, size and power are ideal for the growth of portable electronics. The necessity of machine dependent society, trade and business owing to pandemic COVID-19 will lead to phenomenal demand of VLSI engineers. This shift in industries will open up lucrative career possibilities for VLSI Design engineers in the years to come.

Emerging VLSI Design professionals can get lucrative and exciting placements in esteemed companies as application consultants, field application engineers and design engineers among many others. Over and above industry-oriented jobs VLSI Design engineers can also pursue research or teach in reputed institutions. VLSI engineering graduates can also choose to become Technopreneurs of small scale product manufacturing and services.
