PhD/MSc in Microelectronic System Engineering

CEDEC has over the years built-up a strong capabilities and gained international reputation in the field of microelectronic engineering. As for today, CEDEC is the only center in Malaysia that provides EDA infrastructure for VLSI design and integrated fabrication facilities. Our strategy is to pursue excellence by conducting high-impact research, and producing future talents in meeting the demand by industries and research institutions. In fulfilling these objectives, CEDEC offers exciting opportunities for students to undertake high quality research, leading to the award of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Science (MSc) in Microelectronic System Engineering. This is expected to spearhead concerted effords towards creating more human resource focusing on microelectronic design and fulfill our goal as a centre of excellence which acts as an interface between the academic and industrial engineering world in the hope of enhancing teaching and collaborative research.
