The goals of this course are to give the student an understanding of the elements of semiconductor physics and principles of semiconductor devices that (a) constitute the foundation required for an electrical engineering major to take follow-on courses, and (b) represent the essential basic knowledge of the operation and limitations of the three primary electronic devices, 1) p-n junctions, 2) bipolar transistors, and 3) field effect transistors, that either an electrical engineer or a computer engineer will find useful in maintaining currency with new developments in semiconductor devices and integrated circuits in an extended career in either field.
