SSCS Student Chapter Leuven


The SSCS (Solid-State Circuit Society) Student Chapter Leuven aims to promote micro-electronics for master students and PhD students and to bridge the gap between academia and industry. SSCS focuses on fabricated integrated circuit designs (chips) for all applications using relevant materials and interconnections. To promote this, the Student Chapter organizes a variety of activities like lectures and symposia.
