Course Descriptions

The School of Semiconductor System Engineering was established in 2024 to secure outstanding talents in the increasingly significant field of semiconductors worldwide. Since its founding in 1964, Kwangwoon University has continually evolved to provide excellent education in the fields of electrical, electronic, and computer engineering. In response to the growing global need for semiconductor professionals, the university actively recruits students for the School of Semiconductor System Engineering from 2024 onwards. The curriculum of the School of Semiconductor System Engineering is designed to cover fundamental to advanced subjects necessary for semiconductor design and production in key areas of next-generation semiconductor systems such as artificial intelligence, mobile computing, wireless communication, displays, and memory.
The semiconductor design field is divided into digital and analog/RF design. Digital design encompasses topics ranging from basic digital design theory to the design using hardware description languages (HDL) widely used in the industry, hardware-software co-design for large-scale digital systems, and VLSI design using essential commercial design tools. Analog/RF design covers circuit theory, basic electronic circuit theory and interpretation, analog integrated circuit design, digital integrated circuit design, as well as communication theory, RF, and microwave engineering necessary for understanding semiconductor systems. In the materials/components/process field, students are provided with the basic theories of unit components that make up semiconductor systems and practical training for a wide range of applications.
Based on an understanding of the physical properties of semiconductor materials and the operating principles of various basic components including diodes, transistors, and optoelectronic devices, students will comprehend the semiconductor fabrication processes and equipment through semiconductor process technology courses. Additionally, students will learn about the latest memory, component, and packaging technologies currently utilized in the industry.
Through numerous design/process/component experimental courses, students are equipped to grasp and internalize the concepts learned in theory. Graduates of the School of Semiconductor System Engineering find employment in various semiconductor-related domestic and international companies, research institutes, and public corporations. Recent years have seen a significant increase in demand for semiconductor professionals not only in semiconductor and semiconductor design companies like Samsung Electronics, Intel, and NVIDIA but also in system design companies like Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
Furthermore, graduates can pursue further research through graduate school or study abroad. Our university actively supports students' pursuit of graduate studies through scholarship programs, undergraduate research assistant programs, and other incentives, and every year, it establishes excellent research and educational environments by securing government/research institute/corporate research projects.
