Vision of C4DFED Facility @ IIT Mandi
A World-Class Dynamic Infrastructure and Toolset for Next Generation Integrated Circuits (IC’s) & Electronic Device Design & Fabrication Research and also technology development focusing Semiconductor Industries.
The School of Computing and Electrical Engineering (SCEE), School of Engineering (SE) and School of Basic Sciences (SBS) currently have established diverse expertise and research projects and various program in this area as well others related area. This centre will provide the state of art infrastructure, fulfilling the research needs for IIT Mandi research community and also build a network of faculties & researchers working in the electronic device design & fabrication field that can sustain these activities and foster growth in an advanced area with broad participation or attaining its objective.
Industrial interactions will be an important focus.
A Regional Center is envisaged. Education and manpower development through outreach is one of the major objectives.
Vision of the centre is in line and synchronizes well with the vision of IIT Mandi : “To be a Leader in science and technology education, knowledge creation and innovation”
This is within the ambit of the Make in India Advanced Manufacturing National and State policies.
