University of Glasgow (United Kingdom)

The University of Glasgow is one of the world's top 100 universities. Founded in 1451, it is the fourth oldest university in the United Kingdom and has nearly 16 000 undergraduates, 4 000 postgraduates and 4 000 adults in continuing education. The Device Modelling Group, is one of the largest specialised device modelling groups in the Academia fully dedicated to device modelling and simulation. The Group is the world leader in statistical 3D simulation of advanced CMOS devices including different sources of intrinsic parameter fluctuations.
