India is poised to increase its share in the global manufacturing of mobile phones, IT hardware, automotive electronics, industrial electronics, medical electronics, Internet of Things, and other devices in the near future as it aspires to set up $400 billion of electronics manufacturing by 2025. The semiconductor industry is a knowledge-intensive sector and requires a large pool of engineering talent. This trend is here to stay and will grow further in the coming years. However, for various reasons, there are only limited aspirants among the fresh graduates keen on this sector. The low employability rate among the fresh engineering graduates in the country also invites alarming attention to the prevailing situation.
To make a difference to this prevailing scenario in the country, Fabless Chip Design Incubator (FabCI) IIT Hyderabad and Silizium Circuits is joining hands to introduce a series of grassroots initiatives.
