IIT Hyderabad, in collaboration with WiSig Networks has successfully developed and commercialized 5G technology, including an NB-IoT chipset. In the process, a wealth of new knowledge has been created. It is imperative that this knowledge be shared with as many young graduates in the country as possible in the shortest possible time.
We plan to train at least 500 engineers in advance wireless technologies. The country is moving towards indigenization of 5G networks which requires tens of thousands of skilled man power. This certificate program will help address the acute shortage of manpower in this domain.
The eligible students should have a valid Diploma/BSc/B.Tech degree or equivalent from any branch of Science/ Engineering. UG Engineering students may join the program in the 8th semester after producing no objection certificate from their institute.
Program 1: This will be completely hands on and should be sufficient for
participants seeking entry level jobs in software/ hardware.
Program 2 & 3: This will be completely hands on with basic training on software/ hardware followed by a project.
Program 1: This will be completely online and should be sufficient for entry level jobs in the communication industry.
Program 1: This will be in hybrid mode and should be sufficient for entry level in
Program 2: This will be a combination of hardware/software programming and lectures by IITH faculty and industry experts. Followed by a project.
Program 1: This will be done at the 5G/6G testbed at IITH either offline/online depending on the project requirement. Those who complete the project successfully are likely to pursue jobs in software/hardware/firmware design.
There will be two cutoffs.
Candidates will not receive any certificate and will be dropped from the course.
Candidates will receive a certificate for that module but will not be eligible for the next module.
Candidates will receive a certificate for that module and will be eligible for the next module.
Those who successfully complete all four modules will be given the course completion certificate.
Admission will be through written test on the following date. Candidates will be tested on General Aptitude & Basic Mathematics. Initially, scholarship will be given only for module 1. However, if the candidate becomes eligible for module 2, (s)he will continue to get the scholarship.
Any eligible candidate may join the program by paying the fee for Module 1. However, if they make it to module 2, they will get a scholarship.
