  • Students/Graduates (Bachelors/Masters) with an inclination towards Analog Circuit design, interested to learn Analog Design out of passion and pursue career opportunities.

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 too 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 a job after this course. This is to let you know the reality, but not to discourage you.

ChipEdge doesn’t provide any placement assistance for this course. Its only a skill development course for the interested candidates. If you are interested to join for learning only, we don’t have a problem.
