Electronic and Electrical Engineering MSc by Research


Course Description

Take advantage of one of our 100 Master’s Scholarships to study Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Swansea University, the Times Good University Guide’s Welsh University of the Year 2017. Postgraduate loans are also available to English and Welsh domiciled students. For more information on fees and funding please visit our website.

As a world-leader in the research areas of power semiconductor technology and devices, power electronics, nanotechnology and biometrics, and advanced numerical modelling of micro and nanoelectronic devices, Swansea University provides an excellent base for your research as a MSc by Research student in Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

Key Features of MSc by Research Electronic and Electrical Engineering

The Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) is known for its ground-breaking research into Power IC technology, the key technology for more energy efficient electronics. The Centre is also a world-leader in semiconductor device modelling, FEM and compact modelling.

The MSc by Research Electronic and Electrical Engineering has a wide range of subject choice including areas such as:

- Parallel 3D Finite Element Monte Carlo Device Simulations Of Multigate Transistors
- Modelling of Metal-Semiconductor Contacts for the Next Generation of Nanoscale Transistors
- Novel GaN HEMT Switches for Power Management: Device Design, Optimization and Reliability Issues

MSc by Research in Electronic and Electrical Engineering typically lasts one year full-time, two to three years part-time. This is an individual research project written up in a thesis of 30,000 words.

Facilities

The new home of the Electronic and Electrical Engineering programme is at the innovative Bay Campus provides some of the best university facilities in the UK, in an outstanding location.

Engineering at Swansea University has extensive IT facilities and provides extensive software licenses and packages to support teaching. In addition the University provides open access IT resources.

Students on the Electronic and Electrical Engineering research programme benefit from the Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) facilities.

Links with industry

At Swansea University, Electronic and Electrical Engineering has an active interface with industry and many of our activities are sponsored by companies such as Agilent, Auto Glass, BT and Siemens.

Electronic and Electrical Engineering has a good track record of working with industry both at research level and in linking industry-related work to our postgraduate courses. We also have an industrial advisory board that ensures our taught courses maintain relevance.

Our research groups work with many major UK, Japanese, European and American multinational companies and numerous small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to pioneer research. This activity filters down and influences the project work that is undertaken by all our postgraduate students including those on the Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

Research

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.

World-leading research

The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.

Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.

Highlights of the Engineering results according to the General Engineering Unit of Assessment:

Research Environment at Swansea ranked 2nd in the UK
Research Impact ranked 10th in the UK
Research Power (3*/4* Equivalent staff) ranked 10th in the UK
With recent academic appointments strengthening electronics research at the College, the Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) has been re-launched to support these activities.

The Centre aims to represent all major electronics research within the College and to promote the Electrical and Electronics Engineering degree.

Best known for its research in ground-breaking Power IC technology, the key technology for more energy efficient electronics, the Centre is also a world leader in semiconductor device modelling, FEM and compact modelling.

Electronic and Electrical Engineering: KESS II Funded MSc by Research Studentship: Dielectric Waveguide Fabrication - Single Award

*This scholarships is part funded by the Welsh Government’s European Social Fund (ESF) convergence programme for West Wales and the Valleys.*Swansea University is a UK top 30 institution for research excellence (Research Excellence Framework 2014), and has been named Welsh University of the Year 2017 by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. The successful MSc student will join an experienced team of researchers, and will be trained in the use of semiconductor fabrication and characterisation equipment at Swansea’s Centre for NanoHealth. This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated individual to gain hands on fabrication experience in semiconductor clean rooms working alongside experienced researchers and industry experts. The skills gained would provide the candidate with excellent potential for furthering their research career within academia or applying for jobs in Industry.The project involves development of dielectric films & multiple film stacks which will be used to form waveguide structures and optical passive devices, as designed by the industry partner BB Photonics. The fabrication will involve the use of advanced semiconductor processing equipment to deposit silicon oxynitride films with the specified dielectric properties and then pattern and etch the films to form the desired structures. Films will be characterised for stress, refractive index (RI) and uniformity as well as reproducibility and stability under temperature. The process stability will be assessed using statistical analysis to determine process control parameters and specifications. Specific structures will be diced from the wafers and sent to BB Photonics for characterisation. The data will be fed back to fine tune design and processes, in a cycle of learning to improve device performance, repeatability and stability.Scholarships are collaborative awards with external partners including SME’s and micro companies, as well as public and third sector organisations. The scholarship provides 1 year funding with a 3 month period to complete the thesis. The achievement of a postgraduate skills development award, PSDA, is compulsory for each KESS II scholar and is based on a 30 credit award.

Value of Scholarship(s)

11,358

Eligibility

Candidates should have a 2.1 or above in their undergraduate degree in Physics or Materials/Electronic Engineering or a related subject, and should have undertaken modules in semiconductor processing. They should also be eligible for UK/EU Fees.
