Our Electronic Future

Do you want to revolutionize the world with new and useful technology? Do you want to make new computers that are more effective and creative? Do you want to make new intelligent materials and components by creating them atom by atom? Do you want to construct small nano-robots that can take away cholesterol from the veins, molecule y molecule? Do you want to make new communication paths between electronics and nervs so that deaf people can hear and blind people can see? This may all be possible in the future.

Everyone agrees that the domain of electronics has revolutionized the world the past decades. Only 50 years ago, the thought of being surrounded by computers, microprocessors, Internet, and cell phones was unheard of. The performance of computers is approximately doubled every other year. This development is due to the fact that we now can place more components closer to each other on microchips. We are approaching the atomic border where each component on the microchip is only a few atom-lengths long. It is therefore necessary to think along new paths in order to bring about the development of the future.

The use of new technologies gives unimaginable possibilities. Already today we see how electrical networks allow us to search among incredible amount of information, the CD shelves disappear and you can watch TV programs whenever it suits you. Flat screens with network connections replace clumsy TVs. Microprocessors and electrical sensors make cars, ships, trains, and planes more practical, environmental friendly, and secure.

The field of study of electronics at NTNU provides you with a general knowledge that will allow you to follow on and contribute to the future of electronics. Rather than learning the details of how e.g. a TV is built up of, in this field you will learn about the principles behind the technology of today and tomorrow.
