After progressing from research laboratories to factories to the market, semiconducting polymers now appear in commercial products and offer educational opportunities. Semiconducting polymers are excellent materials with which to teach semiconductor device fabrication principles, device testing, optical and electronic properties, polymer synthesis, polymer film preparation, and structure-property relationships. Previous publications have emphasized multidisciplinary course modules based on semiconducting polymers.1 This work emphasizes how the use of semiconducting polymers in an undergraduate polymer electronics course benefits electrical engineering and computer engineering students.
