Electronics and Microelectronics advancement and the demand for its experts in Indonesia
Electronics and Microelectronics Technology enables the design and implementation of various electronics systems ranging from consumer products (cell phones, game consoles, home appliances, …), control system (industrial, medical or military), computing system and even the telecommunication infrastructures. These applications demand increasingly higher performance but lower prices. The mastery of this technology is proven to have a big role in the development of countries that adopt it, namely Japan, Korea and Taiwan and nowadays also followed by China, Malaysia and Thailand. The focus of program is in the design and implementation of these application and technology.
The Electronic option in ITB focuses on building student abilities on:
- Design and Implementation of embedded system (especially real time system)
- Design of VLSI and System on Chip (SoC)/analog and digital IC
- Microelectronics processing, nanotechnology, and MEMS (Micro Electro-mechanical System)
The electronics option in Electrical Engineering Master Program get support from microelectronics center (MC) of ITB. This center is the biggest ASEAN research institute in the field of electronics/microelectronics. The MC has massive facilities, projects, and industrial relation. Most of the student in this option are involved in this center or from industries/business related to this center. Many of the graduates work also on this industry.
Why choose to follow ITB Microelectronics Master Program?
Electronics option of Master Program on Electrical Engineering at ITB School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics has been running since 1986. Some good reasons for choosing this program are as follows:
- Internship program in overseas especially Japan and France are offered for several selected students. The possibility is quite high as every year more than 25% of our students follow this program.
- There are big possibility to get scholarship, internship fund, and teaching/research assistant allowances
- Opportunity to continue the study up to doctor degree directly. It is possible that the master and doctoral degree is completed in four years.
- This option is supported by the microelectronics center of ITB. This center has a lot of facilities, research and industrial project, funding, and vast relation with industries. Many of the students and graduates involve on these projects and get financial support, experience, even job.
- Offering comprehensive program including:
- Embedded and real time system
- Device and microelectronics process,
- design of microelectronics (analog and digital)
- Having research and teaching collaboration with international institutions such as International Research Center for Telecommunication and Radar ( IRCTR) Delf Holland, Kunieda Laboratory of Tokyo Institute of Technology Japan, MESA + Twente Holland, TIMA Laboratory, France, etc…. These collaborations have opened the opportunity for the students to continue their study abroad.
- Collaborating with national and international industries, for example Atmel Semiconductor, LEN, Xilinx, ST Microelectronics, Fujitsu, Marvel, PINDAD … which actively give input on the curriculum to comply with the industrial needs.
Supported by ITB microelectronic PPAU facilities, including :
- Clean class rooms with CVD microelectronic processing device, ion implantation, sputtering etc
- Design suite for the design of integrated Synopsis and Altera Series
- Various tools, instruments, board. The center has just acquiered multi million dollar tools on broadband telecommunication instruments
- Publication access and microelectronics sector journal
