Basic Electronics, Digital Electronics or Logic Design, CMOS Basics, Verilog HDL, Design for Testability, SystemVerilog HDVL, Static timing analysis.
Is there any free online VLSI course available?
Inexpensive courses with the utmost quality are our unique selling points. You can explore our courses at https://elearn.maven-silicon.com/
What kind of extra support will be given during the course?
We train you both on technical and communication skills. Our regular Business communication classes help you to become all ready to crack interviews. Also, for all the modules of the Blended VLSI DFT course, you get one year access to video tutorials through our learning managing system for extra revisions and practice. We also conduct periodic assessments, weekly knowledge checks, and aptitude tests on our elearn portal.
Can I do the labs and projects from home?
Yes, you can do the labs and projects from home as we provide 24/7 Lab access through VPN and installation of EDA tools on your laptop.
Do you train students to appear for interviews?
Absolutely. We work on imparting blended skills to our trainees. Apart from the technical classes, we have regular Business Communication classes. These classes focus on imbibing confidence, grooming you as professionals, and making you ready to express and present yourself in all kinds of interviews. Mock interviews are conducted for your practise also.
Is there any scope of completing the course before 6 months?
The Blended VLSI DFT has been designed in a very compact manner that covers all the subjects, labs, and projects to make you a VLSI job-ready candidate. To complete all this before 6 months is difficult. But, you can still go ahead and try after the completion of 4 months of training.
When am I supposed to pay the fees?
As you register for the course, you will have to block your seat by paying the entire course fee at once.
What are the modes of payment?
Fees can be paid via NEFT/IMPS/ Debit Card/Credit Card/Mobile wallets/UPI payments.
Can I bring my laptop?
We are equipped with 250+ laptops/computers to support your learning process. Also, we strictly prohibit the use of your personal laptops/storage device in the premises under the copyright and trademark infringement act.
Do you provide an internship with the VLSI companies?
You would take the inhouse internship with Maven Silicon where you will get the opportunity to work on projects which are simulations of industrial projects.
How does the internship at Maven work?
The internship at Maven Silicon is an integral part of the Course Curriculum. It lasts for 6 months. During this, you get to work on various industry-standard projects around Design and Verification. All this will make you Industry ready, experienced, and equip you with the required skill set.
Is it compulsory to complete the 6 months of the internship?
Absolutely not! During your internship, you get to attend multiple interviews as a part of the placement program. You shall be relieved from the internship as you get placed. If you complete your Internship, you would receive an Experience Certificate from us.
From when do I start getting the placement opportunities?
We recommend and provide placement support after the completion of 6 months of training. Click here for see our placement record https://www.maven-silicon.com/placement
Do you provide placements?
We provide 100% placement assistance to you and keep giving you job opportunities until you get placed. You can refer the link for the placement updates and know more about our hiring partners: https://www.maven-silicon.com/placement
Could I get placed even before I complete my training?
Yes. Our placement team starts offering job opportunities from the 5th month onwards. At times, our students get placed even before they complete their training. For trainees who wish to complete their training first and then want to get placed will be offered job opportunities right after the training is finished.
What is the range of starting package for VLSI jobs?
The starting package may be in the range of 3-16 Lacs depending on the role and the company.
I have prior work experience of 1 year in a non-VLSI company. Will this help me in getting a VLSI Job after this training?
No, It will not add much value to your application for a VLSI role. However, with our training, you will have a strong profile for a variety of VLSI jobs i.e. RTL Design Engineer, FPGA Design Engineer, Verification Engineer, Design and Verification Engineer, SOC Verification Engineer, DFT Engineer, AMS Engineer, etc.
Will I go through technical and communication screening before facing the company interviews?
Yes. Every student goes through mock interviews and screening rounds before facing company interviews. This also helps us shortlist suitable candidates matching the client's requirements. For example, Some companies focus mainly on technical skills whereas others require engineers with excellent communication skills. It varies from company to company and profile to profile.
What is the reason few students get a lower package?
There are only two reasons behind a student getting a lower package or no job at all.
- Poor technical skills
- Poor communication skills
If someone does not have a strong grasp on theoretical and practical exposure of concepts or if he/she doesn't know how to explain it well, It is difficult for them to secure a job.
Where should I focus more - theory or labs?
You should focus on both. Without understanding the theoretical part of the concepts, you will not be able to apply them practically. The Blended VLSI DFT course has been designed and delivered to keep this in mind. Every day, you will start with theory sessions to learn and grip the concepts first and spend the latter half of the day in practicing the labs.
Do you guarantee a job after training?
We do not offer job guarantees to anyone. We guarantee you the best training which covers the entire design and verification flow. Our course structure, labs, and projects are well designed to help you navigate through the interview confidently. We also provide regular sessions on business communication which help you with your resume, LinkedIn profile, and lets you experience mock interviews. We are proud of the fact that our track record of placements is impressive and most of the top product and services companies hire from us.
