Semiconductors are present in most of the electronic devices that we use and we cannot imagine our lives without these devices. In order to understand how the devices work, it is essential to understand the underlying concepts of how semiconductors work.
What will you learn
What is this 'Micro-Learning Course' about?
This course will provide learners with an understanding of semiconductor physics and aspects of electrical conduction in semiconductors. With this background, the participants will be to understand the role of semiconductors in electronic devices.
Please note that this course must be completed together with the other 2 MLCs in the following sequence:
1. Fundamentals of Semiconductor Materials
2. Semiconductor p-n Junction and Contacts
3. Semiconductor MOSFET
Who is this course designed for?
This course is suitable for adults who are keen to gain insights into the semiconductor industry and who want to deepen their skills in Wafer Fabrication leading to Specialist Diploma in Wafer Fabrication.
What will you take away?
At the end of the course, you will have the essential information about the physics of semiconductors for understanding common electronic materials and devices.
