IIT-Bhubaneswar Introduces MTech Degrees in Semiconductor & Advanced Maintenance
IIT Bhubaneswar is embracing emerging technology trends with the introduction of two new degree programs for the upcoming academic session. The institute is launching an MTech degree in semiconductor technology and chip design, alongside an interdisciplinary blended-mode MTech degree in advanced maintenance technology.
The MTech degree in semiconductor technology aims to cater to the growing demand in India's Semiconductor Mission (ISM), which is positioning the nation as a global electronics manufacturing and design hub. The program will cover various aspects of semiconductor design, fabrication, assembly, testing, packaging, and the development of IPs/ASICs/SoCs/Systems for specific applications.
Additionally, IIT Bhubaneswar is offering the advanced maintenance technology MTech degree tailored for engineers already employed in the industry.
These initiatives align with India's semiconductor industry's recent milestones, including the establishment of a new semiconductor fab and two outsourced assembly and testing (OSAT) facilities, with a total investment of Rs 1.25 lakh crore. The projects are anticipated to generate numerous technology jobs and startup opportunities, focusing on producing chips with 28 nm, 40 nm, and 90 nm transistors.
Alongside these new degree programs, IIT Bhubaneswar has expanded its course offerings to include a minor in economics, micro-specialization in software engineering, entrepreneurship courses, and a range of new open electives in modern study areas for both undergraduate and research students.
Furthermore, the institute has established a new PhD Fellowship named 'Professor RH Tupkary Fellowship' through a generous donation of Rs 1 crore by Prof Brahma Deo, MGM chair professor at IIT Bhubaneswar. These endeavors underscore IIT Bhubaneswar's commitment to staying at the forefront of technological innovation and addressing the evolving needs of the industry.
