MSc in Electronic System Engineering (JPT/BPP(R/523/7/0098)10/17) PDF Print E-mail
(with an option to spend one additional semester in France for a second degree)

INTRODUCTION

Electronic engineering is a very broad field that encompasses many subfields that includes those that deal with electronic devices and circuit design, control systems, electronics and telecommunications, and embedded systems. Electronics systems comprise of vast amounts of hardware and software and are becoming ever more complex to design, construct, manage and utilise. Such systems require careful specification, and precision design and construction and consequently the demand for engineers trained in the subject is high.





 

At Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, the MSc Electronics Systems Engineering Programme is tailored to train young graduates and professionals with advanced design in integrated circuit design and applications and entrepreneurship skills to enable them to perform R&D and commercialization activities and move up the value chain from the manufacturing era to the design era of the electronic industry.

 

Besides providing in-depth knowledge of specific subject areas, this programme is also intended to expose the graduates and engineers with a range of analytical and research skills that would be of long-term value.

 

The Programme is designed to meet the capability requirements for

 

  • Embedded Systems
  • Microelectronics & IC Design
  • Communication Systems
  • Smart Instrumentations

 

This is achieved through 8 technical modules, 2 management electives, a research methodology course and an R&D project. There is a high degree of computer usage for project, teaching and on-line support. The resource materials are professionally prepared in modular form. Extensive use of e-learning methods is an important attribute of the course delivery.
