The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Requisite and Incompatibility
The textbook is a choice of Introduction to Microelectronic Fabrication by Richard C. Jaeger, Vol V, Modular Series on Solid State Devices (Neudeck & Pierret eds), 2nd Edition, 2002 or S.M. Sze, Semiconductor Devices: Physics and Technology 3e, Wiley, 2006.
If you intend to undertake future semiconductor courses then the latter text is recommended.
Each student is expected to acquire the reading brick from the Office. Extensive notes on semiconductor physics & devices are provided in the reading brick. The library has many books covering semiconductor physics and technology.
Tuition fees are for the academic year indicated at the top of the page.
If you are a domestic graduate coursework or international student you will be required to pay tuition fees. Tuition fees are indexed annually. Further information for domestic and international students about tuition and other fees can be found at Fees.
