Course Aims
To understand the current mechanism and current-voltage characteristics of semiconductor materials.
Course Goals
To learn current mechanism of various metal-semiconductor contacts and p-n junctions, the respons of them against voltage applied various tempatures and frequencess.
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) To learn electronic properties of semiconductors and metals.
2) To learn the theoretical models which can explain the physical characteristics of semiconductors.
3) To design some appropriate electronic devices used in techonology.
4) to define a problem and propose a solution for it, and to solve the problem, evaluate the results and apply them if it is necessary in his/her areas of expertise

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
