Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. VLSI began in the 1970s when complex semiconductors and communication technologies were being developed. This field involves packing more and more logic devices into smaller and smaller areas. The circuits that would have taken board full of space can now be fitted into a small space of few millimeters.



VLSI Design presents state-of-the-art papers in VLSI design, computer-aided design, design analysis, design implementation, simulation and testing. Factors such as increasing capability of an integrated circuit (IC) over the years in terms of computation power, utilization of available area and yield have opened up new frontiers for the VLSI industry to grow.

Since VLSI is a niche industry, skill sets in this industry are short in supply and therefore in great demand. Hence there is tremendous scope and growth for those who choose VLSI design and embedded systems as a career. The part time program gives greater advantage for those who have the work experience as they can pursue the Master’s degree while they continue with their services to industry.
