Modern society depends on reliable and efficient electronics supporting a wide range of application areas such as broadband communications, high-speed computing, healthcare, automotive, artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and more. This means that the demand for engineers with the knowledge required to lead the design of complex integrated circuits and systems will remain high for the foreseeable future.

This programme is organised by several strong divisions with excellent teaching experience and close research collaboration with many companies worldwide. It provides you with a competitive education in digital, analogue and radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (IC) and system-on-chip (SoC) design, combined with in-depth knowledge in signal processing, application-specific processors, embedded systems design, modern communications systems, and radio transceiver design.

The first year offers courses in digital and analogue integrated circuits, digital systems design, digital communication, and an introduction to radio electronics. Later on, you choose between two specialisations:

System-on-Chip, with a focus on digital System-on-Chip design and embedded systems.
Analogue/Digital and RF IC design, with a focus on the design of mixed analogue/digital and radio-frequency integrated circuits.

Información importante

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?: The objective of this master's programme is to provide a strong and competitive education in Electronics Engineering, with emphasis on design of integrated circuits and System-on-Chip in advanced semiconductor technologies as well as embedded systems. The motivation behind the programme is the growing global demand for electronics engineers with knowledge and skills in design of digital, analogue, and Radio Frequency (RF) integrated circuits and System-on-Chip (SoC), combined with in-depth knowledge in signal processing, application specific processors, embedded systems design, modern communications systems, and radio transceivers design. Mobile phones, internet, PCs and TVs, are just a few examples that constantly improve in functionality, performance and cost. In addition, there is growing number of concepts and technologies which will significantly improve areas such as mobile and broadband communications, healthcare, automotive, robotics, energy-systems management, entertainment, consumer electronics, public safety and security, industrial applications, and much more. This indicates that there will be large industrial opportunities in the future, and also large demand for competent engineers with the required knowledge and skills to lead the design of such complex integrated circuits and systems.

¿Esta formación es para mí?: Our graduates can expect excellent career opportunities in major research and development centres, both in the industry and in academic institutions worldwide. You will be specifically trained and qualified to work as an IC design engineer in major semiconductor, IC and telecom companies. You will also be well prepared for further studies towards a doctoral degree.

Requisitos: Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or equivalent. The Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) shall be from an internationally recognised university. 20 ECTS credits in mathematics/applied mathematics and/or applications of mathematics, including linear algebra and transform methods. English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English 6/B). This is normally attested by means of an internationally recognised test. (Exemption from Swedish)
