It runs the oldest VLSI program in the country(Since 1976).
The distinguished faculty members have authored and co-authored several books. Research papers are regularly published in reputed journals and conference proceedings and students are encouraged to contribute to the same. A number of international and national awards have been conferred upon the group members. Many of the faculty members are associated with the editorial boards of leading journals and the programme committees of several conferences.
The group contributes actively to the Memorandum of Understanding between IIT delhi and leading reasearch organisations in the country like the Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute, Pilani (CEERI) and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) as well as a number of industry leaders in VLSI design.
The curriculum is supplemented by regular seminars and workshops as part of IEEE Distinguished Lecture Program, IEEE Circuits and Systems chapter's activities and interaction with experts from the industry including the bright and established alumni from the group. A close interaction of the regular students with the large number of part-time students from the industry results in a unique synergy which enables the group fulfil its vision and mission in a complete and wholesome way.
