Electronics Majoring in Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology is an emerging field for the next generation of electronics, materials and devices leveraging on its exploratory potential. We offer a four year undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Engineering degree majoring in Nanotechnology. For students planning for professional careers in the fields of microelectronics and nanoelectronics, the nanotechnology programme provides a complete undergraduate training in electronics and nanoelectronics-related fields, such as nanomaterials, nanosciences, nanofabrication technology, nanoelectronic devices, MEMS/NEMS, diagnostic technology, computer organisation and architecture, data communication, microprocessor system, and multimedia technology.
In addition, students are also exposed to basic engineering training while learning basic management, economics, accounting and law as part of their career preparation. This programme also provides students with industrial experience and research training, by requiring students to complete industrial training and graduation projects.
