The certificate in integrated electronics offers a comprehensive curriculum on the design of state-of-the-art electronic circuits. Course work builds on an introductory understanding of semiconductor device physics and basic circuit theory. The design of analog and mixed-signal circuits are addressed in courses focusing on issues and trade-offs involved in widely used circuits. In addition, the certificate offers an advanced course to instill an in-depth understanding of all processes involved in designing a modern integrated circuit, including electronic design automation.
This certificate primarily targets people already active in the electrical engineering field and allows experienced technicians and physical designers to become more cross-functional and stronger contributors to multidisciplinary teams. The curriculum provides them with a path for professional growth.
At least five years of working knowledge with electronics and some college-level math and science (e.g., algebra and physics) are required for admission. Applications are reviewed by the program director. Courses in this certificate are available online.
