This programme is suitable for recent graduates and engineers with experience of microelectronics who have good mathematical ability.
It provides a thorough knowledge of the principles and techniques of this exciting field and has been developed in consultation with industry advisors to ensure it is relevant to today’s workplace.
Modules are block taught so can also be studied separately by working engineers as continuous professional development either to enhance their knowledge in particular subject fields or to widen their portfolio.
Core study areas include ASIC engineering, sensors and actuators, technology and verification of VLSI systems, embedded software development and an individual project.
Optional study areas include communication networks, information theory and coding, solar power, wind power, systems architecture, advanced FPGAs, DSP for software radio, advanced photovoltaics, mobile network technologies and advanced applications.
You’ll have access to laboratories, industry standard software (Altera, Cadence, Mentor Graphics, Xilinx) and hardware including equipment provided by Texas Instruments.
