VLSI is an extremely challenging and creative sector that offers exciting growth opportunities for engineers. Factors such as increasing capability of an integrated circuit(IC) in terms of computation power, utilization of available area and yield have opened up new frontiers for the VLSI industry to grow. With the technology advancing at a fast pace, the training institutes should have access to advanced technology libraries, designs, industry-standard sign-off EDA tools and design flows. How ever, there are very few institutes that can train students in such niche are as.Engineers who build strong domain skills and possess strong fundamental knowledge of circuit,logic design or verification will be valued, since they could quickly learn the electronics tool related aspects.

Bangalore headquartered QSoCs employs contemporary technologies like high speed peripheral protocols
,low power design and power verification to impart VLSI Training. QSoCs offers full time programs like QSoCs Certified Physical Design Engineer(QCPDE), QSoCs Certified Design Verification Engineer (QCDVE) which are specifically designed for students and fresh graduates. As a part of QCVDE program, QSoCs has introduced SoC(System on Chip)verification which is now here taught in any of the institutes currently. This program assists students to become experts and equips them with the required skills to work in the professional world.

QSoCs offers skill development programs for working professionals and people who want to migrate from FPGA or EDA to ASIC as the ASIC and SoC domains have a better growth opportunity.“We provide a dedicated system to students. The classes start at 8 am and the labs are open till 9,this gives students plenty of flexibility and time to
experiment. A student of QSoCs has experience equivalent to 2-3 years of experienced engineer in the market,” states Bharath Desareddy, MD, QSoCs.

According to Bharath, the best way to reduce the gap between industry and academia is to bring in industry professionals to teach students. Being taught by industry professionals with 13+ years of experience is enlightening for students with 3-4 years of experience. It helps them in being industry-ready, progress fast and take up challenging tasks. QSoCs has a very rigid selection process and takes up only 10 students in one batch and offers them a100 percent placement guarantee.

QSoCs endeavors to continue contributing talented VLSI designers to the Indian market. The company also aims to spread awareness about VLSI by conducting seminars and making students acquainted with VLSI.“With in one year we have altered the dynamics market in a way that every one is trying to implement the things we have implemented. We are going to bring awareness among each and every college student continuously in different spheres.I hope we'll be successful in going forward in the next year to make sure that everyone knows about getting into VLSI. That’s how we are branding ourselves and keeping up our potential and talent in the market,” concludes Bharath.
