Microelectronics is a cornerstone of the Information Age. It is concerned with studies in integrated electronic/photonic circuits, system architectures, and design automation. It integrates novel electronic and photonic devices into circuits; architects computing, networking, and sensing systems; and automates their design and optimization.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programme in Microelectronics aims to provide rigorous training in the fundamental theories, key technologies, and industrial practices of microelectronics. Students will be trained to investigate novel electronic and photonic devices for analogue and digital circuits; explore advanced architecture for post Moore's Law computing, networking, and sensing systems; and create intelligent design automation tools and methodologies. The programme will also offer modern pedagogical training to prepare research students with specialized and transferrable skills in post Moore's Law integrated circuits and systems that serve the industries.
A candidate for a PhD degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in microelectronics research and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to microelectronics technologies.
