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 cutting-edge and industry-standard methods. You will be taken through the system-on-chip design process, from concept to implementation.

Semester one: System-on-Chip Electronic Design Automation; Nanoelectronic Devices; Digital System Design; System-on-Chip Design Techniques.
Semester two: SOC Design Project; Automated Software Verification; 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.
