Download Admission Booklet | FAQ
PG-DVLSI is a pioneering course offered by C-DAC to assist engineers who wish to gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge in the field of Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) design. It will also prepare them to keep pace with the changing trends of VLSI technology and the requirements of an ever-growing VLSI design industry. The entire course syllabus, courseware, teaching methodology and the course delivery have been derived from the rich research and development background of C-DAC, which has a legacy of designing the PARAM range of supercomputers.
