DIPARTIMENTO DI INGEGNERIA INDUSTRIALE E DELL'INFORMAZIONE
Corso di studio
Annualità Singola (27/09/2021 - 17/06/2022)
32 ore di attività frontale
The course completes the training of electronic engineers specializing in microelectronics.
Attendance of courses related to microelectronics is a recommended prerequisite.
The course has two main objectives. First and foremost, it wants to provide the students an introduction to the industrial reality that exists near the University of Pavia in the area of Microelectronics. This is done through a series of seminars held by Design Managers of several Multinational Semiconductor Companies that have established themselves in the Pavia/Milano area. The goal is to present the Company profile and explain the opportunity offered to the students and expectations the company has toward them. The second objective is to present some advanced topics in Microelectronics emphasizing the practical designer approach that is typical of the industrial environment. This is done through a series of seminars given by the instructor.
