Advanced Microelectronic Systems Engineering


The programme is run jointly by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Department of Computer Science, and spans the topics from both disciplines required for rapid professional advancement in the Microelectronics design industry.

Internationally, there is a shortfall in graduates with the qualifications and skills expected from professional semiconductor design engineers.

A range of taught core subjects such as

  • Computer Architecture
  • Design Verification
  • Both analogue and digital design before progressing into more specialised areas including
  • System Design using FPGA and ASIC Platforms
  • Hardware/Software Co-Design and Verification
  • Integrated Sensors and
  • Actuators and Mixed Signal Design.

This collaboration offers you a great opportunity to learn from experts in the fields of both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering - an invaluable experience whether you intend to start working straight after your degree or continue your studies via a PhD.

The MSc in Advanced Microelectronics System Engineering is aimed at graduates with at least an upper second class bachelors degree (or international equivalent) in a physical sciences or engineering discipline.

The course and programme director is Dr Dinesh Pamunuwa from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
