Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

You should have a B.Sc. or equivalent in electrical engineering, engineering physics or mechanical engineering.

Aim

After the course the participants shall understand the fundamental principles
on which the modern microelectronics and optoelectronics are based, including
semiconductor device functions and microelectronic integrated circuits, together
with the introduction to the fabrication processes of semiconductor devices and
integrated circuits. In addition future electronics and photonics technologies will
be introduced.
