The field of microelectronics systems design embodies many of the key skills relating to integrated circuit design and electronic systems engineering. This cutting-edge programme examines aspects of system integration and discrete device properties, and is an excellent platform for further research in the Nano group and the Electronics and Electrical Engineering group.
Semester one: Digital IC and Systems Design; Digital System Design; Nanoelectronic Devices; VLSI Systems Design.
Semester two: VLSI Design Project; Analogue and Mixed Signal CMOS Design; Advanced Wireless Communication Networks and Systems; Medical Electrical and Electronic Technologies; Cryptography; Digital Systems Synthesis; Embedded Processors.
Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
