Course content

On this one-year MSc you'll gain an understanding of the micro and nanotechnology aspects of electronic engineering, with a focus on microelectromechanical systems and nanoelectronics. These technologies underpin research and development of miniaturised sensors, for example mobile phone motion and position detectors, and of nanoscale logic and memory devices for next-generation consumer electronics and future quantum devices. On this course you can address microfluidic technology for biodevices such as point-of-care diagnostics, and cover the fundamentals of photonic circuits and devices.
