Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems MSc

OVERVIEW

This course has September, January and May intakes.

This MSc has been designed to capture the essence of the rapidly developing fields of Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. It is suitable for a computer science or electrical/electronic engineering graduate who wishes to specialise in the high-speed technology of embedded microelectronics and wireless systems including mobile communications.

As a leading university we are committed to the advancement of embedded microelectronic systems. Research in the University is carried out in several faculty research centres such as Transport & Mobility, Manufacturing & Material Engineering and Cogents Lab, where advances in fields associated with embedded microelectronics and wireless systems include designing real-time wireless networks, the application of systems modelling, statistical and artificial intelligence techniques.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

  • Electrical and electronic research carried out in the Faculty is recognised as world-leading, 45% Internationally Excellent (RAE 2008);
  • excellent links with a number of industrial organisations enable access to the use of high-cost equipment for real-time investigations.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems curriculum consists of a fixed menu of study and a substantial MSc project. Successful completion of both parts leads to the award of MSc in Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems. Completion of the taught modules without a project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.

The mandatory modules are as follows:

  • Digital System Design with VHDL
  • Object Orientated Programming
  • Digital Communications
  • Digital Signal and Image Processing
  • Robotics: Kinematics, Dynamics and Applications
  • Embedded Operating Systems
  • Wireless Intelligent Systems
  • Microprocessor Applications
  • Individual Project 

Prospective students should be aware that most of the mandatory modules include an element of programming, usually in the C/C++ language.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

  • Programme delivered by a specialist team of academics;
  • access to state of the art studio and laboratory and computing facilities with proprietary development systems (Texas, Motorola);
  • personal tutor support throughout the postgraduate study.

Entry Requirements

Entry to this course is possible from wide range of backgrounds, i.e. an honours degree in a science or technology subject, a relevant professional qualification, an unclassified degree in science or technology plus relevant professional experience.

Please note: we have a range of taught postgraduate awards to suit your needs, from Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma to a full Master's Degree (MA, MBA, MSc, LLM). In most cases you can decide to exit at Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma level, without carrying onto the full Master's qualification.

How will this course enhance my career prospects?

Embedded Microelectronics and Wireless Systems are now ever-present in all aspects of technological life for example automotive, biotechnology, communications fixed and mobile networks, information technology, industrial electronics process control, security, and computer technology.

So much so that there is a demand for top graduates in the fields of embedded microelectronics and wireless systems to work either in their development or in the vast number of industries that employ these technologies.

Opportunities also exist to complete a PhD research degree upon completion of the master’s course. More information can be found on our Research page.
