CET315 Principles of Solid-State Electronic Devices

Course Provider

School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS)



Academic Unit



This course aims to teach student the working principles of major solid state devices, such as memory and transistor, that available as advanced manufacturing in Singapore’s microelectronic industry.

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Precision Instrumentation
- FlexiMasters in Precision Instrumentation

On completion of the course, the learners will have a good understanding of the working principles of semiconductor devices. Learners will learn the main functionality and applications of the devices; and they will be able to use devices correctly in advanced manufacturing industry or design of experiments in R&D.

Quantitative understanding and analysis of semiconductor physics, including electronic band structures; charge carrier concentrations;  p-n junction physics; junction and tunnel diodes; metal-semiconductor contacts; metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET), application specific transistors MOSFET and FinFET; volatile memories, SRAM, DRAM; floating gate devices; bipolar junction transistor (BJT) principles, microwave and power devices.

Participants with physical sciences or engineering background, or working engineer who wish to advance in their careers.
