Master's Programme (60 credits) in Electronics Design

60 credits

In this one-year Master’s Programme in Electronics Design, you will develop your expertise in the electronics field, creating opportunities to work with advanced electronics development.

About the education

This programme gives you a solid background in semiconductor technology as well as in component and circuit design. You specialise in the design and realisation of new electronics components and sensors based on nanotechnology and wireless technologies for future embedded electronics and communication systems. 

The programme 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). Each course has a mandatory practical component in an IoT project that spans over the first three quarters of the programme. The IoT project connects the courses and strengthens the intended learning outcomes within the field of electronics design. 

The thesis is carried out 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.
