Program description

MSc Electronics Engineering

This program focuses on the design of integrated circuits and System-on-Chip in advanced semiconductor technologies. This requires a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills across many fields within engineering and science.

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 program 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.

Two specialisations

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.

Admission requirements

  • 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
