Overview

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.

Career opportunities
