Embedded Systems and VLSI Design: The Ocean of Opportunities for Electronics & Computer Graduates

Embedded and VLSI Industry are the future of Indian and Global Electronics and Computer industry. This world of electronics and computer engineers has tremendous growth opportunities in various sectors as, Domestic Electronics, Medical Science, Automobile, Aircraft, Mobile, Computing, IoT, Entertainment, Banking, Robotics, and many more. The demand for the Embedded and VLSI design engineers is quite high in India to develop Systems, Software, Hardware-Software Co-design Models, SoC, ASIC, Standard Cells, and Verification

The Global semiconductor market has showed a growth of nearly 15% in 2018 with market capital reaching upto $500 billion (approx.). The better trend is expected in coming years as well.

Today’s core electronics and computer industry encourages a candidate with following learning approach, if a candidate can understand and apply,
·         the concepts of automation during the design cycle phase by compiling on Linux OS and using Scripting Languages.
·         analyze and implement the fundamental concepts of designing of Digital and Analog circuits and systems using CMOS devices and standard cells.
·         apply the CMOS design rules, static and dynamic logic structures, interconnect analysis, CMOS chip layout, simulation, verification, testing, and low power techniques in the VLSI system and sub-system design.
·         plan, create and implement the hardware, software, Co-design design test models at the complex embedded systems in our day to day life.
·         evaluate, describe, validate and optimize embedded electronic systems in different areas of industrial application such as automobile, aircraft, house-hold, communications, robotics, etc.
·         use the embedded and VLSI tools and technologies to meet the real world challenges and propose suitable solution for them.

The world of Embedded and VLSI Design, offers various amazing career options for ECE graduates with skill set in Embedded Systems and VLSI Design such as,
  • RTL Design Engineer
  • Verification Engineer
  • Synthesis Engineer
  • Software Testing
  • DFT Engineer
  • Product & Validation Engineer
  • FPGA Engineer
  • Physical Design Engineer
  • Layout Design Engineer
  • Analog Design Engineer
  • SoC Design Engineer
  • EDA Development
And the career options available for ECE graduates with skill set in Embedded Systems Design are,
  • Firmware Developer Engineer-WLAN/CAN/RTOS/FPGA
  • Microcontroller/Device Driver Engineer
  • System Architecture Engineer
  • Android Middleware Validation Engineer
  • Software & Automotive Engineers
  • Hardware Design Engineer
  • System Testing Engineer

As an initiative to create skilled engineers for core Semiconductor and Embedded industries and fulfill the skills shortage gaps, The department of EECE, The NorthCap University Gurugram offers a unique course of BTech in ECE with specialization in Embedded Systems and VLSI Design to address the future need for skilled professionals in core technology area of semiconductor and embedded industry.
India is running short in skilled workforce in Embedded Systems and VLSI Design. This programme aims to bridge that gap and prepare students to be industry ready for Embedded Systems and Semiconductors Industry segment for the PAN India and Global market.
