  • Course description

    The course is intended as the first nanoengineering course, however, it is also suitable for senior undergraduate students and graduate students.

    The main goal of the course is to give the fundamentals of modern nanoengineering and skills to apply this in the wide area of micro- and nanoelectronic technology. The course program is divided into two parts: the theoretical part will help students receive or expand basic knowledge in the field of semiconductor physics. The practical part provides the skills of modeling physical processes in nanoelectronic devices and designing novel electronic systems such as the Internet of Things.

    The course includes:

    • - Physical and technological foundation of micro and nanoelectronics. Students will study novel printing and deposition technologies used to produce nanoelectronic devices for scientific and industrial application. The course includes foundations of deposition methods, methods of lithography, Ion implantation, etc.
    • - Technological foundations of modern nanoengineering. Students will learn the basics of semiconductor physics that underlie all nanoelectronic industry, the basics of solid state physics and quantum mechanics.
    • - IoT design Basics. This topic presents the modern trends in application of micro- and nanoelectronic devices and its uses in the design of physical layer of IoT systems. Students will receive knowledge about the main problems of IoT systems implementation and get the practice of designing IoT device with Arduino Uno
    • - Basic course in Nanoelectronic Device Design in COMSOL Multiphysics;
    • - Basic Course in Designing IoT Systems Using MATLAB Simulink. Due to practical courses students will learn the basics of program designing of micro- and nanoelectronic systems, improve the modelling skills in COMSOL Multiphysics and MATLAB Simulink and abilities of development of the Internet of Things system. In the end of the course students will design their own electronic system and demonstrate its unique properties as the final project.
