Electronics (MSc)

Course Description

Programme description

This programme offers distinct specialisation areas in electronics: analogue VLSI design, bioelectronics and analogue and digital systems.

In analogue VLSI design, our facilities include a unique custom designed analogue integrated circuit specifically designed to support laboratory based teaching. Our advanced design and prototyping laboratories, advanced micro and nano fabrication facilities and state-of-the-art digital system laboratories use the latest industry standard software tools.

Alternatively, students may specialise in the emergent discipline of bioelectronics where our research and teaching interests include access to the fabrication facilities at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre. For students who wish to study a more general electronics course including digital systems, a prescribed course selection is available.

Programme structure

This programme is run over 12 months, with two semesters of taught courses, with a number of options, followed by a research project, leading to a masters thesis.
