A Second Major programme combining a physics education with in-depth training in the design and implementation of microelectronic devices.
The field of microelectronics is responsible for numerous technological marvels, such as the incredible processing power and storage capacity packed into our smartphones. The continuing development of microelectronic devices relies on our scientific understanding of the physics of the microscopic world, as well as powerful physical techniques for probing and manipulating matter at the atomic scale.
The BSc in Applied Physics with Second Major in Microelectronics Engineering programme is an interdisciplinary programme offered by NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences in partnership with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The curriculum begins with core physics topics such as electromagnetism and quantum mechanics, and progresses into advanced topics covering the use of physics in microprocessors, integrated circuits, and other semiconductor and spintronic devices.
