This programme is suitable for recent graduates and engineers with experience of microelectronics who have good mathematical ability. It provides a thorough knowledge of the principles and techniques of this exciting field and has been developed in consultation with industry advisors to ensure it is relevant to today’s workplace.

Modules are block taught so can also be studied separately by working engineers as continuous professional development either to enhance their knowledge in particular subject fields or to widen their portfolio.

Core study areas include ASIC engineering, sensors and actuators, technology and verification of VLSI systems, embedded software development and an individual project.

Optional study areas include communication networks, information theory and coding, solar power, wind power, systems architecture, advanced FPGAs, DSP for software radio, advanced photovoltaics, mobile network technologies and advanced applications.

Bristol, and the surrounding area, hosts a thriving and world-leading semiconductor design industry. Read more
Bristol, and the surrounding area, hosts a thriving and world-leading semiconductor design industry. The Microelectronics group at the University of Bristol has many collaborative links with multinational companies in the microelectronics industry that have identified a shortfall in graduates with the necessary qualifications and professional skills to work in the sector. This programme has been designed to meet this need.

A range of taught subjects cover core topics such as advanced architectures and system design using FPGA and DSP platforms, before progressing into more specialised areas such as digital and analogue ASIC design, integrated sensors and actuators and mixed-signal design. Changes are made periodically to reflect important emerging disciplines, such as electronics for internet of things, bio-medical applications and neuromorphic computing.

The programme offers you the opportunity to learn from experts in micro- and nanoelectronics and computer science, to allow you to start working straight after your degree or continue your studies via a PhD. Special emphasis is put on providing you with a range of contemporary design skills to supplement theoretical knowledge. Lectures are accompanied by lab exercises in state-of-the-art industrial EDA software to give you experience of a professional environment.

Programme structure

The course consists of 120 credits of taught units and an individual research project worth 60 credits. The following core subjects, each worth 10 credit points (100 learning hours), are taken over autumn and spring:
-Design Verification
-Analogue Integrated Circuit Design
-Integrated Circuit Electronics
-Digital Filters and Spectral Analysis (M)
-Advanced DSP & FPGA Implementation
-VLSI Design M
-Embedded and Real-Time Systems
-Wireless Networking and Sensing in e-Healthcare

Additionally students are able to choose any two out of the following four 10-credit units (some combinations may not be possible due to timetabling constraints).

-Device Interconnect - Principles and Practice
-Advanced Computer Architecture
-Sustainability, Technology and Business
-Computational Neuroscience
-Bio Sensors

In the spring term, students also take Engineering Research Skills, a 20-credit unit designed to introduce the fundamental skills necessary to carry out the MSc project.

After completing the taught units satisfactorily, all students undertake a final project which involves researching, planning and implementing a major piece of work relating to microelectronics systems design. The project must have a significant scientific or technical component and may involve on-site collaboration with an industrial partner. The thesis is normally submitted by the end of September.

The programme structure is under continual discussion with the National Microelectronics Institute and our industrial advisory board in order that it remains at the cutting edge of the semiconductor industry. It is therefore subject to small changes on an ongoing basis to generally improve the programme and recognise important emerging disciplines.


This course gives graduating students the background to go on to a career in a variety of disciplines in the IT sector, due to the core and specialist units that cover key foundational concepts as well as advanced topics related to hardware design, programming and embedded systems and system-level integration.

Typical careers are in soft fabrication facilities and design houses in the semiconductor industry, electronic-design automation tool vendors, embedded systems specialists and software houses. The course also covers concepts and technologies related to emerging paradigms such as neuromorphic computing and the Internet of Things and prepares you for a career in academic research.

Would you like to prepare yourself for high-level analysis and decision making roles in the public or private sectors?

From international trade to public policy and advanced econometrics, expose yourself to the latest thinking with a Master of Economics from the UWA Business School.

Course description, features and facilities

The Master of Economics is designed for students who plan to pursue careers as economic researchers and decision makers in the public or private sectors.

The course attracts people employed by the public service and private enterprise, as well as teachers already holding a Bachelor of Economics who seek to improve their professional qualifications through postgraduate studies.

Topics covered include microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, financial economics, resource economics, public economics, quantitative economics, economic history and economic development.

Economics at UWA

UWA’s Economics discipline enjoys a large number of international visiting experts and guest lecturers. For more than two decades, 
the discipline has been a partner in the innovative PhD Conference in Economics and Business, which has hosted almost 600 students from major universities around the world.

In addition, the discipline’s international connections are further enhanced by a significant flow of economists from other institutions who visit the Business School to present research results and to work with our staff and students. Recent visitors include Sir David Hendry from Oxford University, 
and the late Arnold Zellner from the University of Chicago.

Further, the annual Shann Memorial Lecture invites a prominent economist to deliver a presentation in the area of economics and finance. All of these events generate considerable interest from the economics community and stimulate the discipline’s teaching and learning activities.
