learning outcome

Students are able to evaluate basic requirements on advanced microelectronic packages and modules and can apply their knowledge in the design of new components. They are able to identify the relationship among semiconductor devices, packages, modules and circuit boards and can evaluate these for specific applications.

Special skills: basics of material science and engineering sciences, early identification of development trends, new technologies and techniques.

Methodological competences: systematic identification of problems and requirements, application of state of the art knowledge, computer aided design, documentation of results. Systems competences:understanding the correlations between design/material/technology and function/system reliability, development of interdisciplinary thinking

Social competences: communication, ability to work in a team, self-confident presenting, environmental consciousness
