With deep-penetration of Intelligent Systems into our everyday lives through advances in the Internet-of-Things (IoT), there is an increased demand for highly-skilled engineers in both academia and industry who can take an idea and develop it into a fully-functional system. Developing such cutting-edge, state-of-he-art systems require deep expertise in a wide-range of fields such as system design, circuit design, physical design, device design, verification, testing and validation. M.Tech inSystem-On-Chip Design (SoCD) is a program that caters to this demand for highly-skilled and well-trained engineers.
This is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and Electrical Engineering (EE) Disciplines at IIT Palakkad. The curriculum of this course has been designed by experts from Industry and academia to cover both the fundamentals, as well as the engineering aspects of designing and developing IC based systems. The M.Tech curriculum is well-balanced where every course has a companion lab component and prescribes a year-long project. This gives a firm platform for graduating students to excel in industry or academia.
The facilities at IIT Palakkad include latest boards andsoftware from ARM, Cadence, Xilinx necessary for developing modern Systems-On-Chip. We also have a micro-nano device fabrication facility with Class 1 lakh and 10000 clean room, and a characterization facility.
