What are the different ways to for an electronics graduate to enter the VLSI industry?

If you’re interested in opportunities in India Here are a some of the ways you could be able to get a shot for an interview

  1. While completing B.E./B.Tech Develop a solid understanding of Electronics topics. You can take VLSI electives and look at the world from a an engineering perspective. Try to find VLSI companies that are on campus.
  2. Find a reference and apply outside of campus.
  3. You can pursue an M.Tech in VLSI at IITs or the top NITs. There are opportunities to be a part of VLSI firms through campus and in placements.
  4. Learn to do M.Tech in VLSI at an IIT or an elite NIT which allows internships. Learn how to complete your the internship process to get an employment.
  5. Visit VLSI to finish school or take the courses required by industry. Apply on campus.
  6. Join “smaller” VLSI companies. You might be sent as contract workers for “bigger” VLSI companies.


1] This an early stage vision requirement. While doing B.E. I didn’t even realize that the Electronics “core” business could be subdivided into VLSI, Communication and Embedded Systems domains. I got an employment in software. I’m sure that the majority of B.E. ECE students are destined to end with this result. Being a good [1] helps to get you into the industry at an early age.

[2] This may be the most challenging. Make referrals – You must to be in contact with people. Even if you already have contacts, there must be open positions in the companies. Even if there are positions and you have been considered for the position, your resume must to get to where it is required to go.

[3was something I did. This is the tough work route to. Learn for GATE, achieve an under 700 score if you are in General Category, then study diligently and intelligently for one calendar year (1st Year M.Tech) Prepare for your on-campus job and then take it.

4. Again, this is something I’m working on. The same as in [3]. GATE is your entry point to the VLSI industry in this area and elsewhere.

[5] Risky. It is impossible to know what companies will appreciate the course you completed. If you took courses in of A, B or or C areas and you have openings in the D, E and F domains, you’ll need to be patient and hope for the best.

“6. This is what I’ve observed at “big” VLSI companies like Intel and Qualcomm Contract workers. Join a smaller-sized firm (not simple, but much simpler than joining a giant) which is known for being a parent firm for contract employees working for the VLSI huge.

Important to remember Take note of these as just ways to gain an interview. Your experience, your knowledge, and your manner of communicating will decide your chances of being accepted into the VLSI-related industry.
