Master's Programme (60 credits) in Electronics Design, 60 credits

In this one-year master’s program, you will develop your expertise in the electronics field, creating opportunities to work with advanced electronics development. The program gives you a solid background in semiconductor technology as well as in component and circuit design. You specialize in the design and realization of new electronics components and sensors based on nanotechnology and wireless technologies for future embedded electronics and communication systems.

The program is linked to Electronics Center in Halmstad – ECH ( which is a collaboration between Halmstad University and companies in the electronics industry. The focus is on research and development of embedded systems and hardware for the future Internet of Things (IoT).

The thesis is done in collaboration with the University’s research groups or with the industry. The research group in micro- and nanoelectronics is a member of a consortium linked to Lund University, within which it is possible to do advanced thesis work in a clean room environment.

The master’s program entails 60 credits. It is intended for students with a previous Bachelor degree in electrical engineering, of at least 180 credits. The program is intended for full time studies over two semesters. Instruction is generally in the form of lectures, seminars, laboratory work, consultation and project work. Several courses have compulsory assignments that shall be presented both in writing and orally. Instruction in all courses will be conducted in English.

In Swedish: Teknologie magisterexamen med huvudområdet elektonik. In English: Degree of Master of Science (One Year) with a major in Electronics.

Specific eligibility requirements
Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) in an engineering subject.

Courses in electrical engineering of at least 90 higher education credits, including electronics, semiconductor components and thesis.
