Course content

This programme outlines 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.

Compulsory modules include: Bio/Micro/Nano Systems; Microfabrication; Microsensor Technologies; MSc Research Project and Dissertation; Project Preparation

Optional modules include: Advanced Memory and Storage; An Introduction to Silicon Photonics; Bionanotechnology; Green Electronics; Medical Electrical and Electronic Technologies; Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip; Nanoelectronic Devices; Nanofabrication and Microscopy; Optical Fibre Sensors; Quantum Devices and Technology
