Course content

Manufacturing at small length scales is fundamental to modern industrial systems and consumer products in electronics, mechanics, avionics, communications, medicine and biotechnology. The Masters in Electronics Manufacturing will provide you with both practical skills and knowledge of the science and theory underpinning traditional electronics manufacturing techniques, along with more novel techniques in nanofabrication and microforming. The programme is ideal for you if you are keen to pursue a career in the development of integrated electronic, MEMS and photonic components for anything from biomedical implants to the latest consumer phone.

  • Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Glasgow is consistently highly ranked recently achieving 1st in Scotland and 5th in the UK (Complete University Guide 2019).
  • In research excellence (REF2014), Engineering was in the UK top 10 for number of staff judged to be world leading, 5th in the UK for world-leading and internationally excellent research.

  • Students taking nanoscale manufacturing options will work in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre, which hold a number of world records in nano-manufacturing, and boasts a 1350 m2 cleanroom and over £32M of fabrication tools.
  • You will take part in an interdisciplinary team project specifically designed to prepare you for engineering projects in industrial manufacturing, dealing with both technical issues and key non-technical issues such as legal, environmental and financial considerations.
  • The School has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the School’s commitment to support women in scientific studies and careers, and to improve the working environment for all.
  • MSc project options are either in collaboration with industry, or academic researchers in the Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering, Infrastructure and Environment, Systems, Power and Energy, Aerospace Sciences, or Biomedical Engineering Divisions.
