Course description and aims

The modern information and communication systems have been developed based on the vast knowledge on information and communications engineering. In order to become a successful researcher in information and communications engineering field and/or senior executive of related industries, learning basic concepts of this field individually is not enough, but a viewpoint that enable us to understand VLSI and computer system field as a whole is required. The purpose of this course is to help students gain the viewpoints mentioned above by providing important ideas that are included as the basis of VLSI and computer system field, and understand their roles in information and communication system by summarizing their relations systematically.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the important ideas that are included as the basis of VLSI and computer system field
2) Understand the roles of information and communication system, and acquire a viewpoint from whole VLSI and computer system field.

Keywords
