This course brings together core techniques and technologies that cover relevant developments in System-on-Chip design, from micro and nano sensor systems to VLSI engineering and system integration, offering a broad coverage of material.
The curriculum is built around 6 learning modules which will provide both theoretical information and practical experience using commonly employed industrial tools. The key module topics are Microsystem and System-On-Chip Technology, Embedded System Design, Advanced Computer-Aided Design and Test, Real Time Systems, and Interfacing and Integration. Additionally each student will undertake a major individual project. The project allows students to extend their knowledge by exploring more fully an area that especially interests them.
Students who graduate from this course will have the multi-disciplinary skills to both contribute to and manage teams responsible for the design and integration of these advanced devices and systems into state-of-the-art products.
This course can be taken as a full-time course or a part-time industry based course. The curriculum is built around six learning modules and a major individual project. Each module consists of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. Modules are delivered by staff from Lancaster University and visiting experts from industry over intensive one or two week periods. For full-time students, the taught modules are complemented by both individual and team project-work.
