Overview

Microelectronics is the most rapidly developing industry sector in the last decades. We need a new partnership between education and work to address the need of synergy between the education and industry, to foster the development of competencies, technological and entrepreneurial skills for the new jobs. This field ranges over a variety of subjects, includes a large number of disciplines dealing with multimedia presentation of the content, simulations, real problems solving and high-order thinking.

On the other hand, there are few individual research teams, laboratories or companies that can reasonably claim to be able to respond to the technological challenges. No one university can afford the necessary infrastructure, clean rooms, technology and experts in all fields of the multidisciplinary micro-/nanoelectronics. The solution is closer cooperation in the university sector and transparency of qualifications and recognition methods.

This Special Session aims to discuss the best practices in microelectronics education, preparation of students for industry, entrepreneurship, as well as collaborative teaching. The Session aims also to exchange good experiences in interuniversity and international collaboration, in sharing resources, laboratories, teachers and students, recognition of curricula.

Topics of Interest

Papers are invited (but not limited to) to the following areas:

  • Novel curricula on micro- / nanoelectronics education
