This programme 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.

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 transceiver design.

Modern society depends on reliable and efficient electronics. Mobile phones, the Internet, computers and TVs are just a few examples that constantly improve in terms of functionality, performance and cost. In addition, a growing number of concepts and technologies significantly improve areas such as mobile and broadband communication, healthcare, automotive technology, robotics, energy systems management, entertainment, consumer electronics, public safety and security, industrial applications, and much more. This suggests that there will be vast industrial opportunities in the future, and a high demand for skilled engineers with the knowledge and skills required to lead the design of such complex integrated circuits and systems.

World-class research activities

The programme is organised by several strong divisions at the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Computer and Information Science. They offer world‐class research activities covering the entire field of integrated electronic design, state‐of‐the‐art laboratories and design environments, and close research collaboration with many companies worldwide. Our 60 researchers and 10 internationally recognised professors have excellent teaching experience.

Design-project courses with the latest software

The programme begins with courses in digital communication, digital integrated circuits, digital system design, analogue integrated circuits, and an introduction to radio electronics.

Later on, you choose between the following two specialisations:

  • System-on-Chip, with a focus on digital System-on-Chip design and embedded systems.
  • Analogue/Digital and RF IC design, with a focus on the design of mixed analogue/digital and radio-frequency integrated circuits.

Several design-project courses provide excellent opportunities for you to improve your design skills. You will be introduced to state-of-the-art circuit and system design environments and CAD tools which are being used in the industry today. If you take the VLSI Design course, you will design real chips using standard CMOS technology. These chips are sent for fabrication and later measured and evaluated in a follow-up course. Only a few select universities around the world have the know-how and capability to provide such courses, and LiU is one of them.
