As a topic of study, semiconductor devices offer aunique challenge due to the complex mathematics involved. In this course, we takea more intuitive approach to explore the underlying concepts.Eschewing mathematics, we use engaging animations to help you visualize the working principles of many common semiconductor devices. Whether you are completely new to the subject or an experienced engineer, thiscourse will give you a differentperspective and a new way to look at the behaviors of semiconductor devices. Reducing the reliance of equations does not mean the depth of the material is sacrificed. In fact, the course provides evenmore in-depth explanations of key concepts.We shift the focus from quantitatively evaluating the behavior of semiconductor devices to intuitively visualizing the semiconductor device actions. In addition, the courseoffers a widearray of content – from basic PN junctions to modern nano-electronic circuit and systems. Besides covering the existing technologies, the course also explores the development of the industry into the future.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
