The MSc in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design from Imperial College London is aimed at future integrated circuit (IC) designers with in-depth knowledge of analogue, mixed signal and digital circuits.


In this Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design course from Imperial College London you will gain experience in both the practical issues of device-level design and system-level performance requirements.

A key feature is the balanced approach to both analogue and digital IC design, and the in-depth treatment of low power circuits and embedded systems.

The course will cover issues that are related to digital system design using modern programming languages, to embedded systems and their OS, to the design of high performance systems based on GPUs and FPGAs, to the design of low power and high performance analogue circuits, as well as issues related to communication of systems (optical and RF) and to MEMS and nanotechnology.

Study programme

You study taught modules, both core and optional, in the Autumn term (October–December). Modules are taught through a blend of lectures, tutorials and practical laboratories. You will then take written exams on the studied modules between May and June.

You also complete a substantial individual research project, which will be carried out in an area of special interest.


This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council.
