Overview

The Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) is known for its ground-breaking research into Power IC technology, the key technology for more energy efficient electronics. The Centre is also a world-leader in semiconductor device modelling, FEM and compact modelling.

During the Electronic and Electrical Engineering programme at Swansea University your supervisor will:

  • Help you develop your research plan in the early stages of your PhD
  • Advise on research aims and objectives and suggest relevant training or skills courses
  • Provide direction in terms of relevant literature and sources
  • Give guidance on gathering, recording and analysing data
  • Supervise your written work, providing constructive criticism and ensuring you keep to deadlines
  • Support and advise you when it comes to presenting papers at conferences, publishing your work and attending your viva (the final oral examination of your thesis)

Programme Structure

Within the Nanoelectronic Devices Computational Group, which forms part of the Electronic Systems Design Centre, previous projects have included:

  • Parallel 3D Finite Element Monte Carlo Device Simulations Of Multigate Transistors
  • Modelling of Metal-Semiconductor Contacts for the Next Generation of Nanoscale Transistors 
  • Novel GaN HEMT Switches for Power Management: Device Design, Optimization and Reliability Issues
