Mouser Electronics has become a sponsor of the IEEE Blended Learning Programme (BLP) in VLSI, which includes providing scholarships to deserving engineering students in India.

IEEE BLP supports undergraduate and postgraduate students from various universities across India studying Electronics and Communication Engineering with the goal of transforming students into industry-ready professionals for the semiconductor industry. The programme employs a highly interactive, performance-based e-learning approach that reinforces core concepts through various stages of self-driven learning, practice sessions and assessments. This engaging online learning is coupled with highly effective, hands-on applied training through extensive project work in instructor-led labs.

The opportunity to partner with IEEE BLP will allow Mouser to play a direct role in advancing this programme's mission by offering scholarships for engineering students. Mouser is committed to offering up to 300 scholarships per year under the sponsorship programme, covering a substantial portion of the student's course fee.

"We are excited to offer these scholarship opportunities and help prepare engineering students from various universities across India to excel in a career in the electronics industry. Mouser was founded by a physics instructor, Jerry Mouser, who needed components for a newly formed electronics programme at his school. That founding idea is still at the heart of our company. We are the go-to source for instructors and future engineers who need a vast selection of quality products, as well as the latest technology trends, design topics, and industry observations for learning and inspiration," said Mark Burr-Lonnon, Senior Vice President of APAC & EMEA at Mouser Electronics.

BLP at Sai Vidya

IEEE has signed an agreement with Sai Vidya Institute of Technology (SVIT), an engineering college in Bangalore affiliated to VTU Belgaum, to offer the BLP in VLSI to all their undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE).

SVIT will provide over 300 students the opportunity to enrol in the VLSI courses. SVIT will work closely with IEEE to establish, on their campus, lab facilities with industry-standard Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools and other computing infrastructure that meet the guidelines established by IEEE.
