Why study Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI)?

The Very Large Scale Integrated Minor at the University of Cincinnati dives into the sophisticated computer programs that are used to create circuit designs and to ensure they perform as desired, before they are produced in circuit foundries. VLSI, or Very Large Scale Integration, describes computer circuits or “chips.” 

This minor is limited to students majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. There is a significant amount of technical prerequisite coursework which only these students would complete as part of their major requirements.


Admission Requirements

Only students majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering are eligible to participate in this minor.

This field is dynamic, due to new technologies necessary to deal with the continually shrinking size of circuits and with the constant need to reduce the electric power they use.

The University of Cincinnati and all regional campuses are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
