Texas Instruments India (TI) and IIT Madras are inviting applications for TI-IIT Madras MS programme. Candidates can submit applications till 30 April.
There is more to this course by Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras.
This year – 2021 – marks the tenth year of this MS programme, which is a collaboration between IIT Madras and Texas Instruments India.
Started in 2011 with five students, this niche programme has admitted over 50 students till date.
About the programme
The MS course offered by Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras is a blended programme in Analog, Mixed Signal (AMS) and RF VLSI Design and RF VLSI Design, that provides a one-year classroom learning coupled with a two-year opportunity to gather industry exposure through an internship with Texas Instruments India.
The programme is a unique Masters in Science (MS) by Research that combines the strength of the analog and mixed-signal expertise at IIT Madras with Texas Instruments India’s industry leadership.
It offers a comprehensive understanding of analog and mixed-signal VLSI from theory to practice, focusing on real-time industry level problem statements.
This Texas Instruments India’s sponsored programme also provides students with a competitive stipend during their internship.
Under the mentorship of senior technical leaders at TI, students go through an end-to-end integrated circuit (IC) development cycle.
Candidates who wish to apply for the MS programme offered by Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras must have below mentioned eligibility conditions:
➢ Bachelor’s degree in Electronics, Telecommunications, Instrumentation or allied disciplines in engineering with an aggregate of 65%.
➢ Applicants for the MS programme of Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras must have a valid GATE score of 650 or more in EC, EE, or IN. Currently, GATE scores are valid for 3 years.
➢ GATE requirement is waived for IIT BTech students with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 8 or higher.
Professor Nagendra Krishnapura and Professor Shanthi Pavan, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras, said the Texas Instruments India-IITM program has proved to be a much-coveted launch pad for analog talent in the country.
It benefits immensely from the more than fifty year tradition of analog excellence at IIT Madras, as well as the opportunity for cutting-edge industrial work at Texas Instruments India.
Ms. Shubhra Bhandari, HR Director, Texas Instruments India said Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras MS programme is unique as it immerses the students in the world of Analog innovation.
It provides access to the academic proficiency of IIT-Madras alongside industry experience at Texas Instruments India.
Ms. Shubhra said individuals who complete this program offered by Texas Instruments India and IIT Madras are equipped with a solid understanding of Analog design and are able to take that knowledge to the forefront of innovation.
It helps them solve complex design problems ranging from applications in electric vehicles, automated factories, intelligent homes, connected cars to health care devices, she said.
Analog Mixed Signal and RF VLSI are niche areas that not only require core competence in electronic circuit design, but also demand expertise in multiple areas of electrical engineering: from network theory to signal processing, and control engineering to electromagnetics.
AMS and RF design skills are in significant short-supply across the world, even as market surveys estimate the global semiconductor market to exceed USD 400 bn.
Some of the highlights about the course being offered by IIT Madras and Texas Instruments are given below:
⮚ A three-year, full-time programme, with one year of classroom learning, followed by an internship at Texas Instruments India campus.
⮚ Full scholarship for students, sponsored by Texas Instruments.
⮚ Chance to learn during a two-year internship with Texas Instruments. A stipend will be provided for the same.
⮚ Opportunity to develop cutting edge technology and present it at an international forum.
⮚ The chance to secure employment at Texas Instruments after completion of the programme.
