Sunder Karthik pursuing MS Says :

Mr. Sivakumar is a performance oriented guide. In a short span of 1 year, he brought into action, a very dynamic curriculum to guide students in the field of VLSI Design and Verification at Maven Silicon. It is the duty of a teacher to help his student build a strong foundation and integrate from there on. I hired his services twice, thanks to the brilliant quality of Education, never to be found anywhere else in India and the result is that I'm right now studying at one of the best institutes for VLSI research in the world. A wonderful future to Mr. Sivakumar and his brainchild, Maven Silicon.
