1.Digital and analog VLSI design
In present technology revolution,in every electronic products like mobiles,computers so on. Contains a chip which are based on VLSI technology.So this is one of the highly demanded course.
In our daily life,we use so many mechanical and electronic devices to make our work faster and easier like washing machine,lifts,escalator,pages,micro ovens etc.. so to do those works we need some processors which works for only a particular applications ie.., like washing machine which only used to wash the clothes.To develop those type of applications we need to embedded some logical programs in processors which is written in the basic embedded program which is similar to C language.so to develop those type of applications most of IT companies need engineers who have sound knowledge in hardware and software design.
3.Computer networking and system security
Cisco is one of the leading producer of routers,and so many companies need network engineers to design the network and to secure the information from threats.Networking and system security is to address the industry needs of security aware network and system administrators.
As we know how the telecom or wireless industries are growing fast as the usability of the wireless equipment by the user is growing so,to meet the user standards these companies required talented peoples in these domain.
5.Digital signal processing applications:
It has also an equal importance in the industry to embedded systems.Here this course used to develop some signal processing applications.
I don’t have much knowledge on this course,but now a days its also becoming popular.
