Curriculum and Course Structure

Under the NEED programme, students will spend the first 9 months at CGU Taiwan, completing core and elective modules, where the students will gain real-life immersion with Taiwan’s leading IC design and semiconductor foundries while undergoing CGU’s industry-oriented curriculum.

All students will complete the compulsory modules listed below. When selecting their elective modules, NEED-Students will choose to specialise at least 4 courses in either the IC Design Track or the Advanced Manufacturing Track.

Compulsory Modules

  • Reliability Engineering for Integrated Circuit Technology

  • Introduction to VLSI: Technology and Design

  • Design for Quality

  • VLSI Modelling & Design

IC Design Track 
(Elective Modules)

  • Computing Electronics Design

  • Analogue Integrated Circuit Design

  • RF Systems Design

  • Mixed Signal Systems by Design

  • VLSI Testing and Testable Designs

  • Biomedical Electronics Design*

  • Nanoscale Design*

  • Applied Artificial Intelligence

Under this Track, students will learn more about the tools, software and processes required to conduct analysis, modeling, design, testing  and development of a wide variety of ICs (AI-edged, analog, digital, radio frequency, mixed-signal).
* Students can choose either Bio-Medical Electronics or Nano-Materials and Devices, but not both.

Advanced Manufacturing Track 
(Elective Modules)

  • VLSI Forensics

  • VLSI Designing for Success

  • Biomedical Electronics Design*

  • Nanoscale Design*

  • Applied Artificial Intelligence

Under this Track, students will learn more about the integral aspects of IC production quality and reliability management. This includes reliability and failure analysis, failure mechanisms and packaging reliability using AI.
* Students can choose either Bio-Medical Electronics or Nano-Materials and Devices, but not both.

NEED-Students will spend the next 9 months at SUTD Singapore, completing a Master thesis and a research project which will incorporate the technical knowledge gained at CGU Taiwan.

Students’ Master thesis will be subjected to an Oral Defense, where students will defend their research against professional critique by a board consisting of SUTD faculty and external faculty/industry experts.

Students are also required to complete at least 4 Professional Short Development Courses to gain industry-relevant knowledge to round out their holistic education.
