ERASMUS courses offered for academic year 2017-18

Autumn semester
Course Title: Advanced Materials and Microelectronics (autumn)
Course Code: 7009-­7109
ECTS credits: 6
Short Description:           
Study of the electronic structure and bonding of materials, electrical conduction in metals and semiconductors, and dielectric and magnetic properties of solids. It also introduces students to the materials science, engineering, and processing of semiconductors. The structure and chemistry of semiconductors are related to the electronic and optical properties. Furthermore, it includes how semiconductors are produced and how to control processing to achieve desired materials properties; how to design and produce novel materials to obtain superior performance from electronic devices.

Course Title:  High voltage technology (autumn)
Course Code: 700Z-710Z
ECTS credits: 6
Short Description:
The course aims to provide the primary knowledge for an electrical engineer, already familiar with the concept of electrical installations, necessary to design a medium voltage substation (20kV). It is divided in four sections:

  • Section 1: Substation topologies and grid integrations
  • Section 2: Calculation of short circuit currents and system grounding
  • Section 3:  Equipment selection (transformers, circuit breakers, buses etc) and
  • Section 4:Economic design and operation of the installation

In addition, during the course students have to participate in a visit at a 150kV/20kV in the city of Iraklion and also an assignment is required in order to successfully complete the course.  

Spring semester
Course Title: Simulation of Electrical Circuits (spring)
Course Code: 600Β-610Β
ECTS credits: 6
Short Description:           
This graduate course deals with methods and tools for electronic device modeling and electronic circuit simulation. The modern electronics industry makes extensive use of CAD/EDA software for circuit design, and in this course you will learn some of the basic tools available to circuit designers.  Students are expected to have some knowledge of semiconductor devices and transistor-level circuit design and be familiar with a SPICE simulation program. Through tutorials and homework assignments, you will learn and use several applications for schematic capture, digital and analog simulation, and circuit layout.
