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
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.
Electronic and Electrical 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.
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.
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.
