Course content

On the Msc in Microelectronics and Computer Engineering, the development of skills and advancement of knowledge focus on developing strong design skills for the seamless integration of software and hardware subsystems through the adoption of software-hardware co-design methodologies.

This will enable you to gain experience of designing digital systems for sustainable and smart applications, using DSP/FPGA/ASIC technology. Students will be aware of alternatives to the mainstream superscalar approach to computer design and instil in them design skills for a variety of acceleration intelligence techniques.

The successful postgraduates of the programme will acquire the knowledge and understanding, intellectual, practical and transferable skills necessary for the analysis and synthesis of problems in engineering and manufacturing through a combination of experimental, simulation, research methods and case studies. You can expect to work in a range of disciplines within a variety of industries from specialist technical roles to positions of management responsibility.
