Though my study level of electronics is very basic I have seen in books they don't tell you how electronic components are made and how they work inside. For instance, some of the books I have seen don't even tell that how resistors work and how they are made. Well, they do say resistors are made from carbon. The same goes for diodes etc. I wanted to know which course/degree address this aspect(s). Please let me know. Thank you.

With best wishes

There is a book which explains the basic structures of resistors, capacitors and transistors plus analysis of some basic and useful circuits.

This is:
