Embedded Electronics Engineering - Master's Programme

Master's programme2 years120 credits

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 programme is demanding and unique in its offering, a perfect preparation for your future career. It spans areas from radio frequency (RF) circuits through to data conversion and digital circuits. Another distinguishing programme 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.

Examples of companies where students have performed their degree projects include RUAG Space (Sweden), Ericsson (Sweden), Oticon A/S (Denmark), and NXP (Netherlands).

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.
  • The programme is taught by world leading researchers and there are very strong links to research in the field.
  • After the initial 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.

Career prospects

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 on 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 towards 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.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements

A Bachelor s degree in electrical engineering, computer science or equivalent including courses in mathematics of at least 20 credits/ECTS. The applicant must have basic knowledge of digital and analogue circuits, corresponding to no less than 6 months of study. English 6/English Course B.

Selection criteria

The selection is based on academic qualifications.

English language requirements

Most of Lund University’s programmes require English Level 6 (unless otherwise stated under "Entry requirements").  This is the equivalent of an overall IELTS score of 6.5 or a TOEFL score of 90.
