This MSc has been designed to capture the essence of the rapidly
developing fields of Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems.
It is suitable for a graduate of science or technology who wishes to
specialise in the high-speed technology of embedded microelectronics
and wireless systems including mobile communications.

As a leading university we are committed to the advancement of
embedded microelectronic systems. Research in the university is
carried out in several centres such as CTAC and Cogent Computing,
where advances in fields associated with embedded microelectronics and
wireless systems include; designing real-time wireless networks, the
application of systems modelling, statistical and artificial
intelligence techniques.

The MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and
Wireless Systems curriculum consists of core topics and a substantial
MSc project. Successful completion of both parts leads to an award of
MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. Completion of
the taught modules without a project leads to an award of a Post
Graduate Diploma.

The mandatory study topics are as follows:

  • Digital Communications Systems
  • Digital Signal Processing Technology
  • Microprocessor applications
  • Embedded Operating Systems
  • Embedded System Programming
  • Wireless Communications
  • Wireless Intelligent Systems

The remainder of the programme is bespoke made up of a 30 academic
credits worth of choice for example; Advanced Programming.

The MSc Project

The Master of Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems study
includes the completion an individual project.  Guided by an expert
tutor, the MSc project serves to provide a method of applying previous
learning whilst further developing the skills necessary to carry out
research and facilitate the acquisition of valuable professional
experience integral to that of microelectronics and wireless systems.

Career opportunities

Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems are now ever-present
in all aspects of technological life for example automotive,
biotechnology, communications fixed and mobile networks, information
technology, industrial electronics process control, security, and
computer technology.

So much so that there is a demand for top graduates in the fields of
embedded microelectronics and wireless systems to work either in their
development or in the vast number of industries that employ these

Opportunities also exist to complete a PhD research degree upon
completion of the master’s course:

  • Coventry Researchnet  
  • Cogent Computing   
  • Control Theory and Applications centre  
  • Distributed Systems and Model
