This programme offers distinct specialisation areas in electronics: analogue VLSI design, bioelectronics and analogue and digital systems.
In analogue VLSI design, our facilities include a unique custom designed analogue integrated circuit specifically designed to support laboratory based teaching. Our advanced design and prototyping laboratories, advanced micro and nano fabrication facilities and state-of-the-art digital system laboratories use the latest industry standard software tools.
Alternatively, students may specialise in the emergent discipline of bioelectronics where our research and teaching interests include access to the fabrication facilities at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre. For students who wish to study a more general electronics course including digital systems, a prescribed course selection is available.
This programme is run over 12 months, with two semesters of taught courses, followed by a research project, leading to a masters thesis. There is a great deal of flexibility in our degree programme with three distinct streams as follows:

You will gain significant practical experience in analogue and digital laboratories and become familiar with the latest industry standard design software and environments. Having been exposed to concepts such as design re-use and systems on chip technology, you will be able to cooperate with others in electronic system design. Recent graduates are now working as applications, design, field, test and validation engineering for employers such as BMW, Guangzhou Hangxin Avionics and Kongsberg Maritime.
Offered through the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Master of Science in Computer Engineering prepares students to apply sophisticated computer architecture and integrated circuit design techniques toward modern computing systems using industry-standard design tools. Faculty and students work together to explore solutions for photonic computing; create state-of-the-art advances in high-performance computing; and improve the reliability of cloud computing.
The program offers up-to-date knowledge and skills in the advances of computer systems architecture and networking, as well as the rapidly-growing use of superscalar microprocessors, real-time embedded systems, VLSI and ASIC design modules, digital signal processors and networked computing platforms.
Students may choose to focus on the following areas of focus in their coursework and thesis:
This Masters in Electronics & Electrical Engineering is designed for both new graduates and more established engineers. It covers a broad spectrum of specialist topics with immediate application to industrial problems, from electrical supply through systems control to high-speed electronics.
*For suitably qualified candidates.
Modes of delivery of the MSc in Electronics and Electrical Engineering include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in lab, project and team work.
You will undertake a project where you will apply your newly learned skills and show to future employers that you have been working on cutting-edge projects relevant to the industry.
Career opportunities include chip design, embedded system design, telecommunications, video systems, automation and control, aerospace, software development, development of PC peripherals and FPGA programming, defence, services for the heavy industries, for example electricity generation equipment and renewables plant, etc.
This MSc provides advanced training and enhances your skills in the specialised area of electronics, communications and computer engineering.
The course aims to provide you with a comprehensive coverage of the skills required by an engineer working in instrumentation, electronic systems, wireless and wired telecommunications, computer hardware, and software aspects of computer engineering.
The programme provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge, students who wish to embark a career in advance research and development, or for students wishing to enhance their training and qualifications.
Particular features of the programme include:
After completing the taught components of the course, you will undertake an industrial internship placement with the major industry players in the field of electronics, communications and computer engineering. Subsequently, with knowledge/skills gained through industrial internship period, you will proceed with highly industry-oriented research project supervised by our expert members of faculty staffs.
This course operates on a modular basis and consists of a series of taught modules (worth 120 credits), followed by 6 months of non-credit bearing industrial internship. During the industrial internship, you will explore your interest in a specific research topic/project dissertation which will be beginning right after your industrial placement. The project dissertation will be 60-credit worth, and will begin in the following spring period.
You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources, as well as small-group and individual tutorial.
Tutors provide feedback on assignments. Our objective is to help you develop the confidence to work as a professional academic, at ease with the conventions of the discipline, and ready to tackle any area of research in electronic communications and computer engineering.
The internships are with IC design, solid-state electronics, automotive electronics or semiconductor industries that are mainly located in Ningbo/Shanghai. Our partners are either international or locally-bred, such as Ningbo Advanced Memory Technology Corporation, Atmel, Sondrel, AMD and Bosch. We may expand our internship programme in Hong Kong, South Korea, etc in the future.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev was established in 1971. The department offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in a wide range of subjects that encompass both practical and theoretical aspects of electrical and computer engineering. The department has 35 faculty members, whose teaching and research fields include: Communications, control and robotics, signal and image processing, computer engineering, electromagnetics and wave propagation, electrooptics, instrumentation and non-linear electronics, VLSI and nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, and power electronics.
The aim of the M.Sc. program in Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide the students with expertise and advanced knowledge in a selected field of specialization within electrical and computer engineering. M.Sc. students carry out a thesis research supervised by an ECE faculty with expertise in the selected field of specialization.
Students graduating with an M.Sc. degree are qualified for senior research and development positions in industry, and may continue towards the Ph.D. studies. In particular, M.Sc. studies can be extended to Ph.D. in a combined track such that the thesis exam serves also as the Ph.D. candidacy exam. The M.Sc. degree is typically completed within 2 academic years (4 semesters). The fields of specialization in the ECE M.Sc. program include: Communications Signal Processing; Control Systems Electromagnetics ; Electro-optics Computers Secure Systems
Applicants to the M.Sc. program should hold a B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering or in closely related fields at a minimum GPA of 80/100. A TOEFL score of 85/120 or equivalent score in an internationally recognized English proficiency exam is required. English proficiency requirement is waived for applicants who received their B.Sc. degree in a program taught in English. GRE is recommended but not required. Additionally, prior to applying to the M.Sc. program, the applicant is expected to contact a potential advisor among the ECE faculty.
The research leading to the M.Sc. thesis is carried out during the entire two years of the studies. The student is expected to publish and present the research results in leading international journals and conferences. The thesis is evaluated through a written report and an oral examination.
