Centre of Excellence for Chip Design

A Centre of Excellence for Chip Design is being set up by NIELIT in partnership with SoCTeamup Semiconductors Pvt Ltd. The aim is to provide internship to UG/PG/Passsout students, faculty members & industry professionals over a period of four months with complete visibility of ASIC design flow (RTL-GDSII) and specialization in one of the chip design verticals viz. Design Verification (DV) and Design for Test (DFT) etc.

Key Highlights:

  1. Industry style internship program with exposure to industry standard projects.
  2. Get specialized in specific IC design verticals like DV, DFT etc.
  3. Complete visibility of ASIC implementation from Specs to GDSII.
  4. Program delivery by highly experienced industry professionals.
  5. Experts having collective experience of delivering 50+ tapeouts to clients like Intel, Nvidia, NXP Semiconductors, Samsung, Texas instruments, Microchip etc. and 50+ years of combined experience in semiconductor industry.
  6. Entire program execution on Cadence EDA tool bundle.
  7. 4-month certificate program with placement support.
  8. Only limited (20) seats for inaugural batch in offline mode.
  9. Availability in both online & offline mode.


  1. Course on Digital Electronics.
  2. Programming in Verilog/VHDL.

Who can attend:

  •  Students pursuing degrees in Electrical engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Computer Science or  related fields.
  • Recent graduates/Faculty members seeking to enter the semiconductor industry.
  • Professionals looking to transition into ASIC design.
  • Anyone interested in gaining practical skills in RTL to GDSII flow for ASICs.
