Programme Overview
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.
 
The 20-month 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.
