The purpose of this degree program is to prepare students for leading edge positions in industry in the areas of VLSI and microelectronics. The Professional Master of VLSI and Microelectronics is a course-only degree program that prepares students for professional practice. Students can pursue a professional master's degree in the area of VLSI and Microelectronics by completing the required core courses; ECE 425, ECE 429, ECE 529, and ECE 575 (and/or ECE 415) and selecting six additional courses from a combination of computer engineering electives, electronics electives, and other areas in electrical and computer engineering. A minimum of 18 credit hours at the 500-level or higher must be selected. With advisor approval the student may take up to two ECE courses in other areas of electrical and computer engineering such as signal processing, communications, power and control. The admission requirements for the proposed degree will follow the existing admission requirements for such professional master's degrees in ECE Department. Students whose accredited B.S. degree is not in electrical engineering may pursue the professional master's degree provided that they have an adequate background and can demonstrate proficiency in the material contained in undergraduate courses equivalent to IIT's ECE 211 and ECE 213 (Circuit Analysis I and II), ECE 218 (Digital Systems), ECE 307 (Electrodynamics), ECE 308 (Signals and Systems), ECE 311 (Engineering Electronics), MATH 251 (Multivariate and Vector Calculus), and MATH 252 (Introduction to Differential Equations). A student may demonstrate proficiency by successfully completing the courses or by demonstrating satisfactory performance in one or more special examinations administered by the ECE department.
