The  NIELIT Centre at Chennai also being developed as an advanced training and development centre housing state of the art facilities with special emphasis technologies of IECT viz. VLSI Design , Embedded System, networking, Information Security,   and IT Applications such as  e-learning / multimedia animation). 

This would help the students who are passing out from Engineering Colleges and Science Colleges by providing value addition to their basic qualification for immediate employability. Professionals and teaching faculties can upgrade their knowledge in the emerging areas of IECT. Also the centre would undertake services and development in the field of Information, Electronics and Communications Technology (IECT) 

Thrust areas:

  • Embedded Systems and Systems Design &. V L S I
  • Information Technology
  • IT Applications.

The state of the art infrastructure is  being created to function in  lines of finishing school addressing niche areas of technology for providing & upgrading the skills of fresh pass outs as well as working professionals for enhancing employability and productivity. 

Linkages / Interaction:

Apart from conducting short duration application oriented courses , the centre is gearing up to take up  Joint initiatives between industry and universities to undertake training & R&D consultancy services in VLSI engineering, Design automation and Embedded system engineering, thereby leading to creation of brand equity and raising familiarity amongst academia.

Linkages are being created with Indian Institute of Technology Madras and  under proposal   with other IITs in the region,   Anna University ,  Madras Institute of Technology , NTTR, Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre etc., Puduchery Engineering College in addition to  Industries ,  Government  as well as other service providers in the field of IECT.

Capacity building in the areas of Electronic Product Design and Production Technology (EPDPT) Project

                          (Through NIELIT Chennai, NIELIT Aurangabad and C-DAC Hyderabad)

Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) Govt. of India, has initiated the project entitled 'Capacity building in the areas of Electronics Product Design and Production Technology' which is being implemented by NIELIT Aurangabad, NIELIT Chennai and C-DAC Hyderabad, to carry out manpower development, promote affordable electronics design, R&D and Industrial Services in the area of Electronic Product Design and Production technology. In the instant initiative, the ISEA project and the SMDP I & II project structures have being taken as a model to bring in the erstwhile CEDT – NIELIT Aurangabad as Resource Centre (RC) to act as a mentor for C-DAC Hyderabad & NIELIT Chennai as the Participating Institutions (PI) to jointly generate quality manpower.

In order to generate quality human resources at various levels, the Centres have initiated various formal and non-formal programs. Towards this direction, NIELIT Aurangabad has launched MTech (Part time) in Electronic Product Design (EPD) for the academic year 2013-14 with the affiliation of Dr. BAM University. Academic Year 2015-16 onwards, NIELIT Chennai & C-DAC Hyderabad has launched M Tech (Full Time) in Electronics Design Technology in collaboration with SCSVMV University, Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu. NIELIT Aurangabad has also launched B.Tech (Full time) in association with Dr. BAM University. With a vision to bridge the gap between academia & industry, the Centres have launched various modular Short Term (6 weeks) and six months PG Diploma programs. These courses in Electronic Product Design, Embedded System Design, Electronic Packaging, Wireless Embedded Systems etc. were prepared under the guidance of experts from Industry, Industry Association and eminent academicians, and being conducted successfully.
