Placement Assistance 

Placement assistance is not available for online courses. These are skill development courses only to upskill yourself. If you are looking for job, you need to help yourself.

Note for Fresh Graduates looking for a Job in Analog Design:

In india, typically Product/MNC companies recruit entry level engineers for Analog Circuit Design from premium institutes (IITs/NITs/BITS/VIT/MIT ..) only through internships and that to very small numbers. If you are not a graduate from any of the premium campuses, entering into Analog Design as a fresher is highly difficult.

Hence we do not recommend to join this course, if you are looking for job after this course. This is to let you know the reality, but not to discourage you.

Knowledge on below topics is Required:
  • Detailed knowledge/understanding of MOS Devices.
  • Basic understanding of circuit simulator – hspice or spectre, etc.
  • Good understanding of control theory, network theory and other basic electrical/electronic subjects.
  • Desirable to have some understanding of Analog Layout
  • Passion towards Analog circuits
  • Work discipline
Online Written Test:

Admission is given by checking the fundamentals through a online written test, on the above topics. If your fundamentals are found to be weak, we would recommend to refresh on your own through some online free resources.

This is intended to ensure that each candidate has the minimum required knowledge on fundamentals for understanding and benefiting from the course.

Who Can Attend This Course?
  • Any Electronics Engineer, who has passion to learn Analog Circuit Design and has some exposure to MOS circuits
  • Engineers working in IO/Analog Layout/Characterization/Modelling/AMS Verification etc. would like to Learn to do their job more effectively or interested to pursue Circuit Design opportunities.
  • Working Analog Circuit Design Engineers who want to fill the gaps in their understanding & strengthen circuit design concepts to contribute effectively in their current role.
  • Faculty working in Engineering Colleges / Universities, teaching Analog Design subjects, who would like to get practical exposure.
  • Students/Graduates (Bachelors/Masters) with inclination towards Analog Circuit design, interested to learn Analog Design out of passion and pursue career opportunities.
