Course Content

Modules:

Modelling and Design: This module focuses on the simulation and design of electronic devices using an advanced software package – COMSOL. This powerful commercial software package is extremely adaptable and can be used to simulate and design a very wide range of physical systems.

Research methods and study skills: This module focuses on the skills required to scope, plan, execute and report the outcomes of research project.

Intro to micro and nanotechnology: This module focuses on the device fabrication techniques at the nano and micro scale.

Optional Modules typically include:
• RF and Optical MEMS
• Prototyping and Fabrication
• Microengineering
• Further Microengineering
• Optical Communications & Systems
• Mobile Communications
• Broadband Communication Systems
• Advanced Sensor Systems

When to apply

The University will accept applications throughout the year, but we would generally advise that you send in your application form by the end of June to ensure that you have time to make any funding and/or accommodation arrangements, and for documents such as transcripts and references to be obtained if not submitted with the application. This will also give you more time to meet any conditions we may potentially attach to an offer.

Careers and Employability

All graduates of this course will have skills and knowledge in the techniques and ideas of modern electronic systems, with a particular emphasis on the influence of nanotechnology on their design. You will also have developed scientific and engineering skills specific to your particular module choices, from the design of multi-million gate digital circuits to modelling communication systems and optoelectronic devices which are of immediate applicability in technical industries.

Research / Links with Industry

The school has close links with local and national technology companies, with potential for work placements, research and development opportunities and collaborative projects.
