Embedded Electronics Engineering offers a wide perspective, where digital and analogue design is regarded as one unit in which different domains interact. The focus is on CMOS, where billions of devices are used to build a system on a single silicon die.
The Shanghai ranking (ARWU) ranks Lund University among the top 20 universities in the world in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering for the year 2017. This programme is demanding and unique in its offering, perfect preparation for your future career. The programme spans areas from radio frequency (RF) circuits through to data conversion and digital circuits. Another distinguishing feature is that circuit design is linked to the area of wireless communication, where RF front-ends are co-designed with digital baseband, which provides the opportunity to build complete transceivers.
Due to the extensive local industry, the programme is closely linked with a variety of private companies, which ensures that our courses maintain high market relevance. In some cases, our students’ degree projects result in patent registrations and the opportunity to publish their work at international conferences.
Special features of the programme:
- The focus is on applied studies in digital IC design, analogue RF IC design and mixed-signal/ data conversion IC design.
- All taught study involves hands-on laboratory work using the most modern CAD tools and IC technologies.
- Taught by world-leading researchers and there are very strong links to research in the field.
- After the initially taught courses, students undertake a large project, where the student starts from a digital or analogue design specification and carries it through to completion and, in some cases, silicon realisation.
Courses and number of credits: Embedded Systems (7.5), Introduction to Structured VLSI Design (7.5), Analogue IC Design (7.5), Digital IC Design (7.5), Integrated A/D and D/A Converters (7.5), Patent and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) (7.5), IC Project & Verification I (7.5), IC Project & Verification II (7.5) Master’s degree project (30), electives at the Faculty of Engineering (in total 30).
After completing this programme you will be ready for a career, or further research studies, in circuits and systems with a focus on VLSI design. Designers in this area are very attractive in the global job market. The Lund area itself is a part of one of the fastest growing regions in Europe, with a large concentration of interesting companies in the field, large and small, such as Sony, Ericsson, Axis, ARM Sweden, Mellanox, Oticon and GN Resound. The European Spallation Source (ESS) and MAX IV, both located in Lund, will also offer students many exciting career opportunities. For some students, perhaps the most interesting career option is to continue toward a PhD.
The final semester degree project offers students the opportunity to work alongside our current PhD students to get a taste for what a career in research is like. This route is very popular with our Master’s students, and a large number of graduates have chosen to continue their studies, both in Lund and at other research institutions around the world.
