Master's Programme (60 credits) in Electronics Design
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.
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.
Bachelor's degree (equivalent of 180 Swedish credit points/ECTS credits at an accredited university) in an engineering subject. Courses in electrical engineering of at least 90 higher education credits, including electronics, semiconductor components and thesis. Courses in mathematics of at least 30 higher education credits or courses including calculus, linear algebra and transform methods. Degrees from other countries than Sweden must be at the same level as a Swedish Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. Applicants must have written and verbal command of the English language equivalent to English course 6 in Swedish Upper-Secondary School.
The courses listed below are included in the programme starting autumn 2021 (may be subject to change).
