Interested and eligible candidates can submit applications online at ee.iitm.ac.in on or before April 30, 2021.

This TI-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.

“The TII-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 TI India,” said Prof. Shanthi Pavan, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras.

Ms. Shubhra Bhandari, HR Director, Texas Instruments, India, “The TI-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 TI.” 

Further, Ms. Shubhra Bhandari added, “Individuals who complete this program 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.”

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 survey estimate the global semiconductor market to exceed USD 400 bn.

Programme highlights:

⮚        A three-year, full-time programme, with one year of classroom learning, followed by an internship at the TI India campus.

⮚        Full scholarship for students, sponsored by TI India.

⮚        Chance to learn during a two-year Internship with TI India. 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 TI India after completion of the programme.

Course Requirements:

➢       Bachelor’s degree in Electronics, Telecommunications, Instrumentation or allied disciplines in engineering with an aggregate of 65%.

➢       Applicants 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.
