This Masters course will equip you with the technical and management skills you need to progress to senior professional positions, specialising in the design, fabrication and testing of microelectronic devices.
You will study the fundamental principles that drive future developments in microelectronics. We offer the opportunity to develop the critical, analytical and experimental skills to solve practical problems and work at the cutting edge of this rapidly developing field.
You’ll learn how to critically analyse designs, their functionality and expected reliability and it will also be important for you to gain a strong understanding of the capabilities and limitations of modelling and simulation tools.
The programme design provides opportunities to practice communication skills at Chartered Engineer level. You’ll gain sought after professional behavioural traits to prepare you for technical and management roles in microelectrical system design.
You will also undertake an individual project giving the opportunity to focus on your area of interest, working with our world-leading researchers.

Further guidance on modules
The information listed in the section entitled ‘What you will study’ is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.
Academic Framework reviews are conducted by LJMU from time to time to ensure that academic standards continue to be maintained. A review is currently in progress and will be operational for the academic year 2016/2017. Final details of this programme’s designated core and option modules will be made available on LJMU’s website as soon as possible and prior to formal enrolment for the academic year 2016/2017.
