ROORKEE, (IANS) – The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with semiconductor leader Micron to help foster innovation and develop a highly skilled local workforce.

The partnership which aims to bolster India’s goal of self-reliance in the semiconductor sector, will help further research into the field of technology, provide experiential learning opportunities for students, and facilitate industry-relevant training.

The Micron Semiconductor Lab will prioritize the technical skills, processes, and resources for student internships and fellowships via specialized master’s and doctoral degree programs.

“As a part of our University Research Alliance, Micron (URAM) outreach, this initiative aligns well with the thrust areas of the India Semiconductor Mission (ISM),” said Anand Ramamoorthy, managing director at Micron India, in a statement. Ramamoorthy is also an alumnus of IIT Roorkee.

The first India-made chip from the Rs 22,500 crore Micron semiconductor plant in Gujarat is set to arrive in December this year.

The IIT Roorkee class of 1996 has pledged to sponsor the prestigious “Rahul Aggarwal- 96 Chair” at the institute. Rahul Aggarwal is an alumnus of the 1996 batch.

This chair, with backing from industry and academia, will facilitate the research and academic initiatives of the Micron Semiconductor Lab in chip design, technology, modeling, characterization, and product development.
