Bangalore, Sep 26 (UNI) In an industry-academia tie-up, city-based JSS Academy of Technical Education (JSSATE), under the umbrella of JSS Mahavidyapeetha of Mysore, today launched a new Engineering course in 'Applied Embedded System Design,' specifically aimed at the needs of the hi-tech semiconductor industry.
JSSATE has introduced this programme in association with a consortium of hi-tech industry majors like Philips Innovation Centre (PIC), ARM, NXP Semiconductors, Electro Systems Associates and Tata Consultancy Services.
The elective on Applied Embedded System Design would be offered to the students studying in Electronics Stream in the seventh semester.
It specifically addressed the needs of the Industry and helped qualified students get assimilated quickly into the industry, JSSATE Principal A A N Murthy claimed.
The five semiconductor majors have come forward to help develop and implement the curriculum and also contributed towards setting up of a specialised lab which was inaugurated by PIC Chief Executive Officer Allexius Collete.
The proposal, which was submitted to Visveswaraya Technological University of which USSATE is an affiliate, had been approved.
