Duration of study (semesters)
Description of course of studies
This Master of Science in Integrated Circuit Design programme is jointly awarded by Technische Universität München (TUM) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The programme is conducted in Singapore at TUM Asia. TUM Asia is TUM’s only offshore campus that is situated in the heart of Asia – Singapore (Singapur). TUM Asia is a full subsidiary of TUM and is an international extension of TUM, to provide TUM degrees in Asia, in cooperation with top Asian universities like NTU.
The international Master of Science in Integrated Circuit Design aims to educate the next generation of engineers and entrepreneurial leaders for the fast moving semiconductor industry. The programme contents ranges from analog, digital and mixed-circuit design over architectural concepts for integrated circuits to design methodology and automation. Product manufacturing and packaging are also addressed. Integrated circuit design is also placed in a broader context, e.g. by teaching fundamental concepts of signal processing which are at the core of today’s communications circuits. Students will also be taught essential non-technical topics such as product marketing, international management, patent law and aspects of culture and globalization. This will be mainly done by highly qualified freelancers from our industry partners. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded a joint Masters degree from NTU and TUM.
This programme makes it possible for students to obtain a degree with both Asian and European perspectives, creating graduates that are global-ready and globally employable.
Costs:~34,000 Singapore Dollars (21,000 EURO)
