The Master’s programme in Electronics Engineering focuses on the design of integrated circuits and System-on-Chip in advanced semiconductor technologies. This requires a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills across many fields within engineering and science, far beyond the curriculum of traditional electronics education. The programme provides a competitive education in digital, analogue and Radio Frequency (RF) integrated circuits (IC) and System-on-Chip (SoC) design, combined with in-depth knowledge in signal processing, application specific processors, embedded systems design, modern communications systems and radio transceivers design.

The modern society depends to a large extent on reliable and efficient electronics. Mobile phones, internet, PCs and TVs are just a few examples that constantly improve in terms of functionality, performance and cost. In addition, there is a growing number of concepts and technologies which will significantly improve areas such as: mobile and broadband communications, healthcare, automotive, robotics, energy systems management, entertainment, consumer electronics, public safety and security, industrial applications and much more. This indicates that there will be vast industrial opportunities in the future, and also a high demand for competent engineers with the required knowledge and skills to lead the design of such complex integrated circuits and systems.

The programme is arranged by several strong divisions at the department of Electrical Engineering and the department of Computer and Information Science. These groups, which include more than 60 researchers and 10 internationally recognized professors, have excellent teaching experience, world-class research activities which cover nearly the entire field of integrated electronic design, state-of-the-art laboratories and design environments, as well as close research collaboration with many companies worldwide.

The programme starts with courses in wireless communication systems, digital integrated circuits, digital system design, analogue integrated circuits and an introduction to radio electronics, providing a solid base for the continuation of the studies. Later on, a large selection of courses provides two major tracks of studies, including common and specific courses. The tracks are:
System-on-Chip with focus on digital System-on-Chip design and embedded systems.
Analogue/Digital and RF IC design with emphasis on the design of mixed analogue/digital and radio frequency integrated circuits.

The programme offers several large design project courses, giving excellent opportunities for students to improve their design skills by using the same state-of-the-art circuit and system design environments and CAD tools that are used in industry today. For instance, in the project course VLSI Design students will design real chips using standard CMOS technology that will be sent for fabrication, measured and evaluated in a follow-up course. Only few universities in the world have the know-how and capability to provide such courses.
