This course allows you to specialise in
advanced electronic design, including
system-on-chip design, embedded systems engineering, high frequency and
microwave engineering (as used in mobile communications links) and integrated circuit design and layout. As well as these core modules, the course offers you a wide choice of options such as optoelectronics, communications systems and electric drives. This programme is suited to those wishing to pursue a career in the embedded systems and digital electronics industries.
You will carry out a project in every year of study. If you choose to study the MEng you will undertake a group design project in your third year.
