MSc System-on-Chip (Socware), 120 credits
The programme will not admit students in autumn 2013.
Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Electrical Engineering.
Teaching language: English
This master’s programme concentrates on technologies for System-on-Chip devices. A System-on-Chip is a highly sophisticated multiprocessor computer, integrated on a single piece of silicon and composed of hundreds of millions of transistors which typically consists of digital, analogue, mixed-signal, and often radio-frequency functions combined with a complex software layer.
Designing and using such a complex system requires multiple skills, beyond a traditional specialisation in electronics, computers or software. These skills are needed for the design of complex Systems-on-Chip, consisting of analogue/RF ASICs, digital ASICs and embedded software.
The System-on-Chip master's programme provides students with more interdisciplinary skills than a regular Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering curriculum. Mandatory courses provide students with the broad understanding needed to master the field. The programme's wide selection of elective courses allows for specialisation in a chosen area, such as analogue/RF design, digital design or embedded systems.
The programme is firmly anchored in the nationally and internationally recognised research conducted in the area of electronic systems at Linköping University.
A wide range of fast developing industry sectors are generating an increasing demand for skilled professionals in the System-on-Chips and Electronic Systems area. The programme serves as a solid basis for professional opportunities as a skilled System-on-Chip engineer in industry. It also constitutes an excellent platform for a possible continuation as a PhD student.
