Course Preamble

Emergence of India as a global economy has opened up a huge demand for electronic products. National Policy on Electronics and Make in India initiative of Government of India has resulted in setting up of many industries in the Electronics Sector and has led to a huge demand  for trained man power in Electronics System Design and Manufacture (ESDM).

Course Objective

To enable new electronics graduates/post graduates or working engineers in electronic industry; specify, design, develop and test electronic products. This course will bridge the major gap in competencies required to design, manufacture and market state-of-the art electronics products.

Course Outcome

On successful completion of the Course, the Participants shall

  •  Be able to specify, Design, Develop and Test electronic Products.
  •  Get exposure to Industrial Design of Electronic Products
