The conventional down-scaling of electronics according to Moore's law is reaching its end, and the question is what comes next? In this course we explore the various trends in electronics research that are expected to jointly become the constituents of future electronics, or what is commonly referred to as "More than Moore". Specifically we treat how the CMOS technology of today evolves to give circuits with broader application areas, as well as how new types of devices and integration could transform what we expect from electronic systems. Finally we learn about new computation concepts that could come to completely change the architecture of computers.
