This Semiconductor Devices specialization is designed to be a deep dive into the fundamentals of the electronic devices that form the backbone of our current integrated circuits technology. You will gain valuable experience in semiconductor physics, pn junctions, metal-semiconductor contacts, bipolar junction transistors, metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) devices, and MOS field effect transistors.

Specialization Learning Outcomes:

*Learn fundamental mechanisms of electrical conduction in semiconductors

*Understand operating principles of basic electronic devices including pn junction, metal-semiconductor contact, bipolar junction transistors and field effect transistors

*Analyze and evaluate the performance of basic electronic devices

*Prepare for further analysis of electronic and photonic devices based on semiconductors
