In this engineering course, you will learn about diodes, bipolar junction transistors, MOSFETs and semiconductor properties.

This course is part 1 of a series that explain the basis of the electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of materials including semiconductors, metals, organics, and insulators. You will learn how devices are built to take advantage of these properties. This is illustrated with a wide range of devices, placing a strong emphasis on new and emerging technologies.

Part 2 - 3.15.2x: Optical Materials and Devices
Part 3 - 3.15.3x: Magnetic Materials and Devices
