The ongoing miniaturization in the microelectronics industry leads to systems that are now being referred to as nanoelectronic systems. Such systems offer a variety of applications, but their design and implementation is becoming increasingly complex. This is the motivation for the master's program "Nanoelectronic Systems". This program focuses on three key areas:
Technologies for nanoelectronic systems.
Design of nanoelectronic systems.
Applications of nanoelectronic systems.
The correlation/overlap between these areas will also be covered. The program not only focuses on traditional scaling ("More Moore"), but also ideas and concepts for "More than Moore" and "Beyond Moore".
The practical training (offered in parallel with theoretical concepts) develops skillsets and expertise that can be used during internships, project work, and the master's thesis which can be undertaken at companies or research institutes.
After a successful completion of the masters program, you are prepared to commence research at a university or at the R&D department of a company developing state-of-the-art technology.
The master's program was initiated by the leading-edge cluster Cool Silicon.
