Program Description

I. Introduction

The main objective of the School of Microelectronics is in the direction of integrated circuit chip design and manufacturing, and fosters innovative leading talents oriented to 
internationalization and industrialization. This discipline is a new engineering discipline developed on many basic disciplines. It is the pioneer and foundation of electronic science and information technology in the 21st century. It is also an important foundation for the development of modern high-tech and national economic modernization. Mainly researching the design and manufacturing technology of semiconductor devices and VLSI, and closely integrating with the industry. The School of Microelectronics will closely cooperate with the electronic engineering departments of famous universities in the Great Bay Area (such as the University of 
Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and the University of Macau), as well as many leading enterprises in Shenzhen's local electronic information direction (such as Huawei, ZTE, Tencent, etc.) Also will cooperate with the four research directions of EDA, VLSI-SoC, wide WBG semiconductor, and future communication. Therefore, the project class is different from the existing microelectronics disciplines, and will further explore new engineering construction oriented by internationalization and industrialization.

II. Objectives and Learning Outcomes

The Microelectronic Science and Engineering major aims to provide students not only solid theoretical knowledge in semiconductor materials and devices, but also intends to the cultivate innovative leading talents capable of manufacturing and designing integrated circuit chips. The students can participate in microelectronics science and engineering courses offered by university teachers in Hong Kong and Macau at SUSTech, as well as internship courses (such as Huawei, ZTE, Tencent, etc.). After graduating, the students can work in the design of electronic components manufacturing, integrated circuits and systems in various related enterprises, or they can continue their studies or research in famous universities in the Great Bay Area (such as Hong Kong University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the University of Macau).
