Dear Sir/ Madam,

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 semiconductors 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.

In this regard, AICTE has approved following new courses/ nomenclatures under emerging areas:
(i) Diploma in IC Manufacturing
(ii) B.Tech/B.E. in Electronics Engineering (VLSI Design and Technology)

Institutions who are interested and eligible to start these courses shall be permitted subject to satisfying the conditions laid down in the APH 2022-2023 for starting a new course.
The Model Curriculum for the above-mentioned courses shall be published soon.
