Course content

Systems in mobile telephones, computers, cars and aircraft are shrinking, with many parts implemented as a single integrated circuit. This programme prepares you for the rapidly changing skills required to support this. The focus is on system-on-chip design techniques and extensive practical use of cuttingedge and industry-standard methods. You will be taken through the systemon-chip design process, from concept to implementation.

Semester one: Secure Hardware Design; Nanoelectronic Devices; Digital System Design; Digital IC and Systems Design; Real-Time Computing and Embedded Systems.
Semester two: SOC Design Project; Analogue and Mixed Signal CMOS Design; Advanced Wireless Communication Networks and Systems; Medical Electrical and Electronic Technologies; Cryptography; Digital Systems Synthesis; Embedded Processors.

Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
