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.

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

How you're supervised on the Electronic and Electrical Engineering research programme

Your supervisor will:

  • Help you develop your research plan in the early stages of your project
  • Advise on research aims and objectives and suggest relevant training or skills courses
  • Provide direction in terms of relevant literature and sources
  • Give guidance on gathering, recording and analysing data
  • Supervise your written work, providing constructive criticism and ensuring you keep to deadlines
  • Support and advise you when it comes to presenting papers at conferences, publishing your work and attending your viva (the final oral examination of your thesis)
