The International College of Semiconductor Technology (ICST) is positioned as an industry-oriented international institute with master’s and doctoral programs that complement the development of the department’s existing departments (Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Electronic Physics , Department of Materials Engineering, etc.)


Training required for Electronic technology and semiconductor technology are developing rapidly and in a wide range of fields. To train the next generation of semiconductor technology international talents, the Semiconductor Technology International College offers full English courses which is divided into two major areas: semiconductor materials and device technologies, semiconductor IC design and Micro-system Integration. 

What you'll study

The series of courses in semiconductor materials and solid-state electronic devices focuses on semiconductor technology in the post-Moore era, including topics related to More Moore and More than Moore. The More Moore theme focuses on the development of related device technologies for next-generation nano-electronics scaling. Semiconductor materials, such as sub-5nm electronic device technology, and More than Moore is the electronic device technology that focuses on application and system orientation, such as quantum devices, power devices.), sensors or bio chips, and so on.

Semiconductor chip design and micro-system integration series courses focus on "device level circuit design research" and "system level circuit architecture" for applications such as IoT, 5G mobile communication, smart robots, artificial intelligence computing and deep learning technology, biomedical electronics, etc.

The circuit design of the device level is based on the circuit technology to fully utilize the characteristics of the electronic devices to achieve a high-performance integrated circuit; the system-level circuit architecture design will target the system application and process packaging technology, develop key circuits, and implement system performance analysis to achieve system wafer and heterogeneous system integration. The core courses in the main basic circuit design field are "digital integrated circuits" and "analog integrated circuits". 

The course enables students to explore basic design techniques and understand circuit theory. Equipped with basic knowledge, students can select advanced courses, including memory circuits, system design, RF communication system amplifier design overview, low-power digital circuit design, MMW communication transceiver design, etc. The series of courses leads to the acquisition of the latest "device level circuit design research" and "system level circuit architecture development".
