The purpose of the Master of Micro- and Nanoelectronics Engineering programme is to develop engineers with advanced abilities in applying fundamental microelectronics within multi- and cross-disciplinary environments of today’s workplace. In addition to being able to respond to complex problems and provide solutions to challenges experienced in the field of integrated circuit (IC) and systems on package (SoP) design, the programme will promote and develop the capability to perform independent research, investigate IC nanophenomena from scientific principles and implement outcomes to improve microelectronic designs.

The proposed curriculum is designed to provide advanced knowledge in areas such as analogue, digital and mixed-signal electronic design, RF, Mm-Wave and communications engineering, physics of semiconductor materials, design for testability, and microelectronic processes. Curriculum is designed to assist students in acquiring advanced computer skills, including the excessive use of online resources and electronic design automation (EDA) tools. The degree includes a minor dissertation, thus promoting research and independent learning from the candidates.
