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.

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

Placements

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 to client's requirement. For example, Some companies focus mainly on technical skills whereas others require engineers with excellent communication skills. It varies company from 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 RN 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.
