The Microelectronics System Design MSc course offered by the University of Southampton examines aspects of system integration and discrete device properties. It is also an excellent platform for further research in the Nano or Electronic and Software Systems groups.
We’ve led many of the most important advances in electronics and microelectronics over the past 30 years. This course will give you the highly sought-after skills for research or work in the industry.
You’ll gain key skills relating to digital and analogue integrated circuit design and electronic systems engineering. There will also be opportunities to engage in specialised activities around the production of system on chip design on both integrated circuit and advanced FPGA (field-programmable gate array) platforms.
Through this course you’ll learn how to:
- specify and design complex and highly integrated microelectronic systems
- model and simulate the behaviour of parts of microelectronics systems elements and complete circuits
- evaluate a device design using advanced simulation and modelling tools
- find, understand and explain literature related to specialised areas of microelectronics systems
- formulate a research project involving an advanced microelectronics system using appropriate the latest techniques, technologies and tools
