NTU-TUM full-time M.Sc. (IC Design) programme is a highly-specialised programme
jointly offered by NTU and Technical University of Munich (TUM) with a strong
technical emphasis on both the theory and practice of integrated circuit
design. This self-financed joint
programme is conducted by faculty from both universities, and it is administered by the Technical
the German Institute of Science and Technology - TUM Asia Pte Ltd.
During the last
decade, the rapid technological advancement associated with portable and
compact computers, communications, audio and video products has drawn
increasing interest from the electronics industry in the integrated circuits
(IC) design area as evidenced by the continued and accelerated integration of
electronic hardware. The programme is
thus developed to meet this growing demand.
full-time programme, includes 2 semesters of coursework and practical modules,
3 months on internship, and a third semester to work full-time on a
dissertation that must be on a topic related to integrated circuit design. The
programme was launched in July 2005. So far, the programme has run smoothly to
the satisfaction of both students and staff.
To date, most graduates from this programme have found jobs in the IC
Design industry here in Singapore and some in Germany.
