Course detail

Microelectronic Technologies

FEKT-DKA-ME2Acad. year: 2020/2021

The subject is focused on a study of the microelectronic technologies using seminary and self-study. Students will take-up overview about elemental and advanced methods and techniques, material utilization, and rules for microstructure creation. They will know how to take bearings in areas of the design and fabrication, as well about utilization of nanotechnologies in microelectronics.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Preview of the mehods and techniques in thin-film and semicoductor technology, design skill of the microstructures and nanostructures using advanced techniques of fabrication.
