The bachelor of science is offered with a major in electrical and computer engineering. Students have considerable flexibility to pursue second majors and minors within the Pratt School of Engineering or Duke's Trinity College of Arts and Sciences. Solid-State Devices and Integrated Circuits This area is concerned with the properties and manufacture of building-block devices (diodes, transistors, lasers) used in integrated circuits (IC's) to build electronic and photonic systems, and with their integration into circuits. Example applications include: digital computer components (CPUs, RAM, CDROM), telecommunications equipment components (parts essential for cell phones, digital switches, modems), and displays, which underlie a large array of consumer products (televisions, CD players, VCR's etc). It also encompasses the burgeoning field of microelectromechanical, micromechanical and microfluidic devices made possible by the fabrication techniques underlying integrated circuit manufacture.
