On this well-established MSc programme you willdevelop advanced knowledge and skills in key aspects of telecommunications and wireless systems.
The course content is updated annually to maintain industry relevance and to reflect the latest developments in the industry.
The first two sections consist of lectures, laboratory classes and seminars, with a final section devoted to an individually supervised project.
We cover the following core (compulsory) topics during the MSc:
- Embedded computer systems
- Digital system design
- IC design
- Microprocess systems
- Research skills and project management.
To meet the increasing demands for MSc students with industry experience, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics has introduced a 2-year MSc programme for graduates of the highest calibre, to develop advanced knowledge and skills in microelectronic systems and give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice through valuable work experience during a one year industrial placement.
Graduates will be capable of undertaking research and development work in microelectronic Systems and also developing and managing R&D programmes.
This 2-year MSc programme EEMI shares the same taught modules with its equivalent 1-year MSc in Microelectronic Systems (EEMS) in year 1. But unlike the 1-year MSc students who do their MSc project over the summer, students on the 2 year MSc (EEMI) are required to undertake an industrial project and placement (either in the UK or overseas) in year 2, typically 30 weeks from September to next June.
This opportunity to work in industry will help students strengthen their career options by
- Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting;
- Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice;
- Developing communications and interpersonal skills;
- Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout their career.
Our postgraduate students get to be a part of the cutting edge research projects being undertaken by our academic staff.
Here are some of the areas these projects cover:-
Molecular and semiconductor integrated circuit electronics
Digital signal processing
Free electron lasers
Energy efficient systems
You’ll get plenty of industry exposure too. Our industrial partners include ARM Holdings Plc, a top 200 UK company that specialises in microprocessor design and development.
As a result our postgraduates have an impressive record of securing employment after graduation in a wide range of careers not limited to engineering.
