Course description and aims

Modeling which is an abstraction of the action and the construction in devices and systems and the simulation using the models are the basic of science and technology. This course deals the modeling and the simulation technologies on electronic circuits, and electronic materials.
This course aims to acquire the ability to solve the actual problems by applying the knowledge in electromagnetism, solid-state physics, and electronic circuits with programming of MATALB, as well as studying the principles of modeling and the simulation.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to acquire the following ability.
1) Make basic simulation programs using MATLAB.
2) Make basic simulation programs and modeling in electronic circuits.
3) Explain and make basic simulation programs in the first principle calculation.
