Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) announced the exchange of signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru and Lam Research India at the ongoing SemiconIndia in Gandhinagar today.
The collaboration, initiated by this Ministry, brings together the academic excellence of IISc’s CeNSE and the global expertise of Lam Research, a renowned supplier of innovative wafer fabrication equipment.
Lam Research’s ambitious goal is to utilise Semiverse Solutions to develop a 60,000 strong workforce in nano-fabrication in India over the next 10 years.
The core objective of this collaboration is to jointly develop a customised course offering for Indian universities, dedicated to teaching semiconductor fabrication technology. This will utilise Lam Research’s cutting-edge Semiverse Solutions virtual fabrication software, SEMulator3D.
The IISc and Lam Research will collaboratively develop the framework for the Pilot Course syllabus. The first stage is expected to be completed by December 2023, with the second stage is anticipated to be concluded by June 2024.
