Additional information Workload: 60 h lecture (course attendance) 30 h exercise (course attendance) 90 h exercise (self-organized studies) 60 h lecture (revision)   Learning Outcome: Knowledge Students will understand the abundance of electronic materials spanning the range from semiconductors to ceramics and including “simple” topics like conductors and magnetic materials. Skills They will learn that technology is intimately linked to properties and functions and apply this knowledge to the functions and the making of devices like Si chips, sensors, solar cells, thermoelectric, magnetic and nano compound devices. Competences Students will get a solid background in general theory which enables them to quickly adapt to new materials, concepts
