EWME 2014 is the tenth Workshop on microelectronics education to take place in Europe. The previous ones were held in Grenoble (1996, 2012), Noordwijkerhout (1998), Aix-en-Provence (2000), Vigo (2002), Lausanne (2004), Stockholm (2006), Budapest (2008), and Darmstadt (2010). EWME is held every second year in Europe, while MSE (Microelectronic Systems Education) is held every other year in the USA.

EWME 2014 will take place in Tallinn whose medieval Old Town is known around the world for its well-preserved completeness and authentic Hanseatic architecture. Enchanting atmosphere, rich cultural scene, beautiful surroundings and plenty of galleries, cafes and restaurants to choose from: there is something for everyone in Tallinn. EWME 2014 is organized by the Department of Computer Engineering of Tallinn University of Technology.

The proceedings of EWME 2014 will be published in IEEEXplore.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum to exchange ideas and to discuss developments and challenges in research and education on microelectronics, microsystems and related areas.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Industrial outlook and projects
  • Microelectronics teaching in the future
  • Emerging fields in design and technology
  • New concepts in teaching
  • Multimedia in microelectronics education
  • Globalization and international education
  • Design and technological innovations
  • Effects of the Bologna Process on microelectronics education in Europe
  • Long-distance and continuous microelectronics education
  • Novel curricula on micro- / nanoelectronics education
  • Novel courses, laboratories and design projects
  • Industry-university collaboration on education
  • Entrepreneurship in micro- and nanoelectronics
  • Industrial roadmaps and microelectronics education
  • Exchange programs (compatibility of curricula, …)
  • Multi- and many-core embedded systems and software in new curricula
  • MOOCs: Massive Open Online Courses and microelectronics education


Special Session "VLSI Design Education in the 21st Century"

The special session "VLSI Engineering Education in the 21st Century", will explore innovative approaches to the current VLSI curriculum, which is supposed to render it fully up-to-date and to prepare the next generation of engineers satisfying the modern requirements. Session chair: Ilya Levin ( More information can be found here.
