- developing communication and learning skills: the ability to write coherent and consistent science papers and documents, the ability to manage your own learning and make use of primary research sources and reviews
- advanced software for computer integrated circuit simulations: Cadence Design Systems, ADS, Microwave Office, ANSYS, Comsol;
- modern equipment for measuring and test: Rohde & Schwarz, Keysight;
- advanced digital design knowledge based on Xilinx FPGA;
- scientific research activities, regular participation in seminars, conferences and forums;
- joint projects and research activities with teachers' engagement;
- cross-cultural studies and other extracurricular activities at the University;
- scholarships to study abroad in English in one of the European partner universities (a semester or a summer school).
About the program
Major areas of expertise:
Upon graduation of this course one may pursue positions in R&D departments in international companies in the field of IC design for telecommunications, such as NXP Semiconductors, Infineon Technologies, Fraunhofer Institute, ST-Microelectronics, TSMC, WinSemiconductors UMC. A possible position is “a design engineer”.
There is also an option to continue studies and get PhD. The program has been started in 2015. 24 persons have been graduated.
