Master's Programme (60 credits) in Electronics Design

60 credits

As an electronics engineer, you are very much sought after in the labour market, because of the explosive development of intelligent electronics. This means everything from driverless vehicles and smart homes to health technology and energy systems in the smart cities of the future. This Master’s programme develops your skills so that you can work with advanced electronics development.

About the education

Innovative environments and collaborations

This program has a unique link to industry and to Lund University. It is also closely linked to the Electronics Centre in Halmstad, an innovation arena in electronics development for researchers and companies in the region. There is a test chamber here for electromagnetic compatibility, for example, where companies can test their products for more efficient product development.

Courses and competencies in focus

The Master's programme in Electronics Design focuses on research and development in embedded systems and hardware for the Internet of Things of the future. You assimilate the theoretical and practical skills required to actively participate in the development of the future of embedded electronics and communications systems.

This means that the programme gives you real competence in semiconductor technology as well as component and circuit design. You specialise in the design and realisation of new electronic components and sensors, based on nanotechnology and wireless technology for the embedded electronics and communications systems of the future.

Collaboration opportunities

During semester two, you perform your degree project in collaboration with the university's research groups or together with a company. The research group in micro- and nanoelectronics is part of a consortium affiliated with Lund University, within which you can perform advanced degree project work in a clean room environment, for example.
