Microelectronics and Embedded Systems (MES)

The region’s growing industrial sector and the increasing demand for high technologies have brought the need for expertise in microelectronics to a critical level. The Master Program in Microelectronics, introduced in May 2000, responds to the needs of countries in Southeast Asia, many of which are in transition from labor-intensive to high-tech industries. The curriculum focuses on the design and IC packaging aspects for specific applications. Fabrication, including prototyping of chips, is included in the curriculum and is featured in partnership with microelectronics industries and collaborating universities overseas. Currently, courses in Bio-Nano Materials Science and Engineering are being added to the offerings of the field.

Programs leading to the award of AIT’s Doctor of Engineering, Doctor of Technical Science, Master of Engineering, Master of Science, diploma, and certificate are offered.

Mechatronics provides new insights through an integrated consideration of mechanics, electronics, and information technology. The curriculum is designed to provide multidisciplinary knowledge and to develop the ability to design mechatronic systems.

Programs leading to the award of AIT’s Doctor of Engineering, Doctor of Technical Science, Master of Engineering, Master of Science, diploma, and certificate are offered.
