What will I learn?

The MSc in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit is aimed at future integrated circuit (IC) designers with in-depth knowledge of analogue, mixed signal and digital circuits. You will gain experience in both the practical issues of device-level design and system-level performance requirements. A key feature is a balanced approach to both analogue and digital IC design, and the in-depth treatment of low power circuits and embedded systems. We 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.

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. It meets the full academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially meets the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
