Is there a device you have been dreaming about?
Do you want to get a job in the semiconductor industry?
If so, I may have a course for you. I am teaching a new course in Device
Design next quarter. This course satisfied the capstone requirement in
the Devices area, but would also be valuable for students interested in
VLSI design. The focus of the course will be a quarter-long design
project of some electronic or optoelectronic device. Some examples would
be a thin film solar cell or an ultra-low power transistor. Other
possibilities include LEDs, sensors, power electronic devices, or almost
anything you can imagine. The reason that such a broad range of options
are available is that we will be using the same powerful TCAD suite used
by industry to design their devices.
