#K-VLSI Design Skill Program in Karnataka

About K-VLSI Design Skill Program

The Industry and Govt.of Karnataka acknowledges the pressing need to address the increasing demand for skilled professionals in the field of VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) Design. With rapid technological advancements, VLSI plays a crucial role in sectors such as telecommunications, automotive, healthcare, and consumer electronics. However, there is a significant shortage of trained individuals possessing the necessary knowledge and expertise in VLSI Design.
