The two approved courses are Diploma in IC Manufacturing and BTech or BE Electronics in VLSI Design and Technology, the apex advisory body for higher technical education said.

"With reference to the programme for development of semiconductors and display manufacturing ecosystem in India as approved by the cabinet, it is pertinent that the aspirations of India to set up semi-conductors and display manufacturing ecosystem would require market ready talent pool in the field of semi-conductors and display which ultimately would require a clear roadmap of capacity building," AICTE said in a letter to all vice-chancellors and heads of technical institutions.

"Institutions that are interested and eligible to start these courses shall be permitted subject to satisfying the conditions laid down in the Approval Process Handbook (APH) 2022-2023 for starting a new course. The model curriculum for the two courses shall be published soon," it added.
