Hyderabad: MosChip Institute of Silicon Systems (formerly Institute of Silicon Systems), the leading VLSI institute in Hyderabad has become the first institute in India to train 500 Analog Layout Engineers. Started by technocrats having 35+ years of experience in the VLSI industry, Moschip Institute of Silicon Systems offers comprehensive industry-oriented training programs in Analog Layout, Physical Design and Design Verification.
With the changes in the semiconductor industry, the skill requirements of the Semiconductor industry have also changed drastically. The educational institutions in India with the static methods of teaching are not able to provide a well-trained workforce as per the industry requirements. Updating the skill-set of the students as per the industry requirements has become mandatory.
“The landscape of the semiconductor industry has changed over the past 10 years, we need to ensure that the workforce of future is ready”, said Srinivasa Kakumanu, Co-Founder, MosChip Institute of Silicon Systems and Senior Vice President, Semiconductor Design Services, MosChip Technologies Limited. “MosChip Institute of Silicon Systems offers industry-focused training programs that are designed and developed for the overall development of our students, with hands-on approach to learning, due to which we have been able to supply a skilled work force to the industry.”
Training programs offered by MosChip Institute of Silicon Systems are designed to bridge the gap between the industry requirement and the student skill set. The courses emphasize on the fundamental knowledge of the VLSI by giving students access to industry tools.
“The Semiconductor industry is facing an acute shortage of trained skilled workforce. There is a mismatch between demand and supply. The electronics industry will be USD 400 billion by 2020 in India, which will result in creation of 28.5 million jobs in the electronics sector which is riding on smart cities, solar & LED, IoT, semiconductor and Industry 4.0, this will give rise to huge demand fora skilled workforce and there is a gap in the required skills and job ready youth.” says Venkata Simhadri, CEO, MosChip Technologies Limited. He further adds “Employers want workforce with specialized skills for specific jobs. The opportunity must be tapped, and a large scale of the skilled workforce must be created to fill the demand-supply gap.”
“We don’t stick to blackboard teaching methods. Our teaching methodologies is a mix of classroom learning, practical sessions, self-learning, assignments and projects. Students get to work on real-time application-oriented assignments and project work which helps them to thoroughly understand the fundamentals of the digital design as well as the practical application of the concept”, says Giri Kondaveeti, Co-Founder, MosChip Institute of Silicon Systems.
