M.Tech (Integrated Circuit Technology)

It is a two-year (4-semester) AICTE approved programme. The first two semesters are devoted to course-work, and the next two semesters are devoted to master’s thesis work. Students have the option to do their master’s thesis within the University or Industry or R & D Labs in relevant area. For all candidates carrying out thesis work in Industry or R&D Labs, there will be two supervisors: one from the respective Lab/Company and the other from CASEST, University of Hyderabad. Currently, the course work offered by CASEST covers theory and laboratory courses in Analog, Mixed-Signal, Digital, RF CMOS IC Design, µW-RFIC, MEMS, Semiconductor Devices and Microelectronics fabrication. The laboratory courses cover Design, Simulation, Fabrication, Testing and Validation of Devices, Integrated Circuits and Microsystems by using state-of-the art EDA Tools, Technologies and Techniques.
