The partnership enabled the inauguration of the Micron Semiconductor Lab at IIT Roorkee's Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

The lab is set to become a cornerstone for research and development in semiconductor technology, providing students with hands-on experience and access to industry-standard processes and resources. 


Bridging academia and industry

The collaboration between IIT Roorkee and Micron encompasses a broad spectrum of activities aimed at bridging the gap between academia and the semiconductor industry. These include advancing research in technology fields, offering experiential learning opportunities through internships and fellowships, and facilitating industry-relevant training.

An augmented curriculum and a dedicated team of professors will support specialized master's and doctoral degree programs and guide students in their technical development.

Alumni support and industry collaboration

Highlighting the role of alumni in supporting educational initiatives, the IIT Roorkee class of 1996 has pledged to sponsor the “Rahul Aggarwal-96 Chair” to further the research and academic initiatives of the Micron Semiconductor Lab. 

“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). We are grateful for the support and collaboration from the alumni class of 1996. As an alumnus of this esteemed institution, this initiative holds a special place in my heart," said Anand Ramamoorthy, MD at Micron India

"As we march into the future, IIT-Roorkee remains steadfast in our dedication to pioneering technological advancements. With our esteemed alumni leading the charge, we are poised to shape India's semiconductor landscape and realise the vision of a developed Bharat by 2047, as envisioned by our honourable Prime Minister Shri Modi,” Prof Pant said.
