About This Course

As a course instructor, I wanted to curate and bring most of the questions about the interviews asked under ONE COURSE or ONE PLATFORM for all to access and benefit. You should not be surprised to find many of these questions to be seen in many GATE ECE papers from 2012 – 2020. Some of the questions asked in the interview have direct answers, while many others are presented to know about the approach to solve the problem.

The course is designed for the people who are appearing for Interviews after the Undergrad or as professionals for higher positions. In this course, you will learn the intuitive approach of solving the problem and learn what are the applications of the simple circuits. The principles of design thinking and problem solving have been used in various sections and lectures to prepare a positive outcome.

These questions are curated from my personal experience of answering questions in the Tech roundson the white board  – of top semiconductor product companies like Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, Intel, Cypress Semi, Analog Devices, etc.
