The Centre for Advanced Studies in Electronics Science and Technology (CASEST) is a successor to the DoE/UGC Electronics Programme initiated in 1995-96 to carry out research and teaching in Electronics Science. The Centre is supported by the UGC’s Special Assistance under DRS-1. The Centre offers three programmes: Master of Technology in Integrated Circuits Technology [M.Tech. (ICT)], Master of Technology in Microelectronics & VLSI Design [M.Tech. (MVLSI)], and Ph.D. in Electronics Science and Engineering
