National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET)
«Integrated microsystems design with Mentor Graphics»
Education Field: 11.04.03. Design and technology of electronic tools


The master's program "Integrated microsystems design with Mentor Graphics" is implemented by MIET in conjunction with Mentor A Siemens Business. This company is a world leader in the ECAD systems development. Together we train specialists in the field of research, designing, modeling and technological preparation products for microsystem technology production, and sensor systems using digital twin technology based on modern CAD systems Mentor A Siemens Business.

The combination of “design” and “technology” in the name of educational field (11.04.03 Design and technology of electronic tools) is not accidental, because you can only develop a modern electronic device by combining knowledge of the latest computer-aided design systems and capabilities of technology. This is especially true in the rapidly developing direction of intelligent sensor systems.

The program curriculum covers main stages in the life cycle of sensory systems development: from research to manufacture and testing. Some subjects are taught in English.
