Objectives and learning outcomes

Having studied this major, the student is able to know and understand the properties of common and emerging materials used in micro devices, such as solar cells, LEDs, lasers, and nanoelectronic devices. The student also knows the major fabrication methods used to fabricate micro devices. In addition, the student knows where and how nanotechnology can be applied to enhance these devices.

The student understands the relevant mathematical concepts and principles used to model these devices. He understands the structural, electronic and photonic properties of the devices. The student understands the underlying physical principles and phenomena and the operating principles behind the micro devices.

Finally, the student is able to apply his acquired knowledge so that he can engage in international positions, multidisciplinary groups, or pursue doctoral studies in the field. Special assignments and Master's thesis provide the student a natural opportunity to analyse specific research problems.
