The Integrated Circuits and Systems Program focuses on teaching and research activities in high-tech industries such as 5G communications, biomedical, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and robotics. Building upon the solid foundation of Tsinghua University and industries in the Greater Bay Area, the program works closely with industry, provides an integrated and multidisciplinary education, and aims to nurture great integrated circuit industry leaders.
Our faculties come from well-known universities from around the world, such as Leuven University in Belgium, Illinois University of Technology, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and world-class companies such as the European Microelectronics Center (IMEC) and Qualcomm. They have rich teaching experience and fruitful research results, and are experienced in school-enterprise and industry-university-research cooperation, as well as international exchanges and cooperation.
In recent years, the program has led or joined more than 40 scientific research projects such as national key research and development plans, general projects of the National Natural Science Foundation, National Natural Science Foundation Youth Fund, Guangdong Province Key Research and Development Projects, and Shenzhen Fundamental Research Projects. The program has published dozens of papers in top integrated circuits journals (IEEE JSSC, IEEE TPE, IEEE TCASI, IEEE TVLSI), as well as top conferences (IEEE CICC, IEEE ESSCirC, IEEE ISCAS) and has been granted or applied for more than 40 invention patents (including international PCT applications). It has established long-term cooperation with several international universities such as KU Leuven in Belgium. The program has nurtured a large number of outstanding master graduates; and played an important role in research institutes and companies in the integrated circuits industry.
Length of study
