Stream Outline

The specialisation in Microelectronics and Microsystems provides students with the opportunity to acquire comprehensive knowledge over a range of technology and design issues in Microelectronics and Microsystems. The core courses provide a firm foundation in semiconductor device physics and the technology involved in the fabrication of microelectronic circuits. The microelectronic design courses will cover basics of analog and digital integrated circuit design and lead on to more advanced treatment of mixed-signal design issues, commonly encountered in VLSI circuits. The Microsytems course will introduce students into the world Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), sensors and actuators.
