AICTE approves courses in Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturing and VLSI Design and Technology

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has approved two new courses in Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturing and VLSI Design and Technology. The approval has come in order to help prepare a market-ready talent pool in the field of semiconductors and display manufacturing. The courses approved by AICTE are Diploma in IC Manufacturing and BTech or BE Electronics in VLSI Design and Technology.

An official letter released by AICTE to all Vice-Chancellors and heads of technical institutions reads, "With reference to the Program for development of semiconductors and display manufacturing ecosystem in India as approved by the Cabinet, it is pertinent that the aspirations of India to set up semi-conductors and display manufacturing ecosystem would require market-ready talent pool in the field of semiconductors and display which ultimately would require a clear roadmap of capacity building.”

It further added, "Institutions who are interested and eligible to start these courses shall be permitted subject to satisfying the conditions laid down in the Approval Process Handbook (APH) 2022-2023 for starting a new course. The model curriculum for the two courses shall be published soon.”

Degrees from Pakistan not eligible in India

Earlier, AICTE along with University Grants Commission (UGC) issued an advisory stating that Indian nationals or overseas citizens of India with a degree from an educational institution in Pakistan “shall not be eligible for seeking employment or higher studies in India”.

“However, migrants and their children who have acquired higher education degrees in Pakistan and have been awarded citizenship by India would be eligible for seeking employment in India after obtaining Security Clearance from MHA,” the notice added.
