A New Master's Program in Integrated Electronic System Design
Paper in proceedings, 2008

We present the formation of a new Master’s program in Integrated Electronic System Design (IESD). The main ideas behind the program are; 1) Two parallel introductory courses in the first study quarter: One rather practical top-down VHDL-oriented course, and one more theoretical bottom-up silicon-oriented digital VLSI design course. 2) A new broad course focusing on design methodologies from Electronic System Level (ESL) to VLSI, with hands-on emphasis on ASIC backend methodologies. 3) A large project during the first year spring semester in which the knowledge gained during the fall is utilized in design and verification using several complementing technology platforms. 4) Re-use of existing advanced specialist courses (formal methods, computer architecture, and analog VLSI design).
