It is recognized for its world-class research and hold the Excellent in Teaching rating. The school also has an international reputation for electronics research for energy and advanced semiconductor materials & devices. This course places strong emphasis on 'state of the art' electronics for energy efficient devices and power electronics. The course also covers renewable energy generation technologies. Exciting new developments such as ?plastic electronics?, energy harvesting, solar cells and biofuels are discussed and recent developments in nanotechnology are highlighted. Students will learn about numerical simulation techniques and have the chance to visit electronics industries with links to Swansea. The electronics and energy industries are two of the largest industrial sectors worth hundreds of billions of dollars worldwide. Electronics for sustainable energy generation and utilization is a vital industry in today?s energy thirsty world. Energy generation and transformation, in the most efficient way possible, is the key to reducing carbon emissions. This MSc course addresses both these themes in depth with modules focussing on power and renewable energy generation technologies, power electronics, and new semiconductor materials for more efficient electronics. These subjects are highly topical and scientifically important. There is also an emphasis on cutting edge research technology with modules covering nanotechnology and MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems). In addition to this, there are some more general engineering modules which will give students a good foundation and develop their background knowledge and key engineering skills. The MSc is representative of the prominent research areas in electronics, nanotechnology and energy generation technologies at Swansea University. The advanced topics covered will provide a stimulating challenge for MSc students and give them a valuable knowledge base for further study or a career in industry. This course provides students with the knowledge, motivation, and self-learning skills required for continuous professional development during their future careers and provides valuable experience of working on complex projects both as individuals and as team members. Our aim is for students to develop the potential to become future leaders and champions of industry.
