Summer School 2024

A conference to shape the future of semiconductor technology

Centre for Nano Science and Engineering

Indian Institute of Science

June 3-14, 2024


Registration is closed


CeNSE, IISc is launching a Summer School in semiconductor technology that is targeted at UG/PG students intrigued by semiconductor manufacturing. Semiconductor manufacturing is having a moment. For the first time, India is making significant investments in manufacturing advanced semiconductor devices. The Government of India has launched the ₹77000 Cr Indian Semiconductor Mission (ISM), under which commercial semiconductor foundries are being built in the country for the first time.

The upcoming facilities require a highly skilled workforce, estimated by MeitY’s talent committee to be 30,000 by 2027 and 65,000 by 2032. The Summer School is our attempt to deliver training in semiconductor technology at scale. ISM can only succeed if promising youngsters participate in it.

The training program will be of 2 weeks duration. The fees for enrolling to this Summer School is Rs. 1000/-

About CeNSE

The Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) was established in 2010 to pursue interdisciplinary research on the nanoscale. Topics of interest include, but not limited to materials, electronics, MEMS/NEMS, photonics, biotechnology, and solar cells. If you have an exciting and revolutionary idea, come talk to us. We welcome both academic and industry collaborations.

CeNSE houses a state-of-the art national nanofabrication centre (NNfC) with 14000 square feet of class 100/1000 clean room. It also houses a comprehensive micro nano characterization facility (MNCF) to conduct virtually any type of electrical, optical, mechanical and material characterization. Both of these are national user facilities are accessible to outside researchers for very reasonable charges.
