Bristol and the surrounding area host a thriving and world-renowned semiconductor design industry. The Advanced Microelectronic Systems Engineering at the University of Bristol has many collaborative links with multinational companies in the microelectronics industry. These organisations have identified a shortfall in graduates with the necessary qualifications and professional skills to work in the sector, so this programme has been designed to meet this need.
A range of taught subjects cover core topics, such as digital and analogue ASIC design, DSP and FPGA-based computing, integrated sensors and actuators, radio-frequency and mixed-signal design. Changes are made periodically to reflect important emerging disciplines, such as electronics for the Internet of things, biomedical applications and quantum photonics applications.
Graduates of this programme will be prepared for a career in a variety of disciplines in the IT sector, thanks to the core and specialist units that cover key foundational concepts and advanced topics related to hardware design, programming, and embedded systems and system-level integration.
Typical careers are in soft fabrication facilities and design houses in the semiconductor industry, electronic-design automation tool vendors, embedded systems specialists and software houses. The programme also covers concepts and technologies related to emerging paradigms such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of things, as well as preparing you for a career in academic research.
