One of the most required and sought after skills in the electronics industry is that of project development and PCB designing for various applications. These applications may vary from prototyping for a student mini project, to a highly advanced industry application. While designing any of these, selecting the proper component, designing the correct circuit and making a clean PCB are the most basic and crucial steps that decide how successful the project will be. Strong fundamental knowledge of these skills and a good hands-on experience signify a good design engineer. Eduvance offers an IUCEE endorsed certificate course in project development and PCB designing. This course will enable the candidates to master the skill of designing PCBs at professional level and develop project at a phenomenal pace easily. At the end of this course, student will satisfactorily be able to develop a Single and Multi layered PCB and use the same in a competitive student project.
