A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.
Skilled design professionals are needed in many organizations to tool custom solutions for common problems. Because the design field encompasses a broad variety of environments and applications, specialists are needed in small business, large corporations, education, non-profits, and government.
Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.
Being the largest city in Sweden, Stockholm has over 1.3 million people in the urban area. The city comprises of several Islands and it is the capital city of Sweden. Stockholm has over 10 universities and colleges.

Master in System-on-Chip DesignFor more than 20 years, integrated electronics has been the major technological force shaping our everyday lives. Today’s trend is shifting from personal computers to personal communication and computing, where system knowledge and expertise is summarised by single-chip solutions incorporating both hardware and software.Programme outlineThe System-on-Chip Design Master’s programme includes the key areas of knowledge and skills required to command the system-on-chip technology, namely hardware design, embedded software design, analogue circuit and radio design, systems engineering and extensive practical project work.
The programme begins with a mandatory block of courses, which is followed by one of two specialisations: The ASIC/SoC Design track addresses the problem of chip-level design and integration of functional blocks and integrated circuits in nanoscale CMOS technology. It covers the details of circuit design methodology and tools, trade-off analysis between power, area and performance, and hardware implementation in silicon technology; it bridges circuit design and nanoscale technologies to architectural strategies and provides an understanding of the future development in this field. The Embedded Electronics track addresses the problem of designing, assembling, dimensioning and verifying embedded systems including the embedded software. It covers the details of the digital design flow, the verification of embedded systems, and the hardware dependent software layers.Degree projectThe degree project may be carried out at KTH, at other universities, research institutes or at a company in Sweden or abroad. Projects in industry are particularly encouraged.Career prospectsPotential employers of System-on-Chip Design graduates are companies that design and develop electronic components and embedded systems in the telecom, automotive, automation, security, consumer electronics, and a variety of other industries. Due to the international setting of the programme, graduates are well suited to work in global corporations on any continent. A relatively large proportion of graduates have also pursued PhD studies at universities in Sweden and abroad.... [-]
