New Update


Chennai-based Advanced Training Institute for Information Technology (ATIIT), into providing high-end training in Analog, Digital, mixed Analog-Digital VLSI/ULSIs and ASICs, is expanding its curriculum.

The new courses to be added in July are Analog Front-End Design/Simulation, DSP & Embedded Soft-Core

Design/Simulation, Process Technology and short-term courses such as Optical Fiber Techniques and Front End VHDL/Verilog HDL. The course fees range from Rs 80,000-Rs 2 lakh. This is in addition to the existing courses on Digital Back-End Design/Simulation, Network Planning/Modeling and Simulation, Protocol Engineering/ERP Networking and Communication System Chip Design. The course on Process Technology will be conducted in Chennai for 3 months and 3 months in Singapore, as foundries are not available in India. For this, ATIIT has tied up with a Singaporean company Temasec Polytechnic, a subsidiary of Edubridge Singapore.

Meanwhile ATIIT is also expanding horizons and opening a center in Bangalore. Delhi and Pune will be its next stops. The center in Bangalore, to be up and running by mid-July, would be a tie-up between Edubridge Singapore and Edutech Technologies, the major investor in ATIIT. It would focus on software courses offered by Edubridge Singapore initially. By the end of August, ATIIT would start offering its high-end technology courses. An investment of more than Rs 2.5 crore have been allocated for the center.

ATIIT is promoted by Prof JP Raina formerly with IIT Madras and NRIs in a Singaporean company Edutech Technologies earlier known as KSP Investments with Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu, ELCOT, as another partner. Prof Raina feels that only expertise in the high-end technology area will make India a strong force in IT. "None of the training institutes in India cater to this need though they claim to provide it. With 20 senior faculties from the IITs and IIS, we have the key resources to meet this demand and fill the gap in the industry," says Prof
