Duration: 2 Years
Optoelectronics and Communication have been deemed as the 21st century revolutionary technologies that will create as enormous an impact as electronics did in the 20th century. This interdisciplinary M.Tech programme aims to generate trained professionals in the broad areas of optoelectronics and communications with an emphasis on networking, signal processing and VLSI technologies. One half of the courses are core papers and the other half are electives. This enables students to pursue areas in their areas of academic interest. The core courses give a strong background of science and engineering. These are supplemented with laboratory courses, enabling the students to take up project work in the second year. Students of this program undergo core training in optoelectronics, VLSI, Signal Processing and related communication technologies that have made them highly compatible and ubiquitous in leading industries and R&D organizations across the world.
The Project work taken up by the students in the fourth semester are done in collaboration with mentors from leading industries of the communication sector, provides as an ultimate training to apply the technologies learnt, serving as a heads up to face the industry requirements. Indeed, the industry-related dissertation work is considered to be the highlight of this M. Tech. program.
