Our programmes and research projects focus on microelectronics, photonics and communications, three high tech areas that use cutting-edge, interdisciplinary technologies and continue to shape our information-based society and daily lives. We are also looking to add to these areas with IC design, embedded systems and signal processing and control. We provide our students with the practical skills they need to design and manufacture future tech, as well as theoretical knowledge, covering different materials, devices and systems. We deliver three undergraduate programmes:
• Microelectronics Science & Engineering - semiconductor physics, functional electronic materials, solid-state devices, ULSI circuit design, MEMS and semiconductor manufacturing technology.
• Optoelectronic Science & Engineering - display, lighting, photovoltaic and fibre communications including next generation flat panel display, efficient solid state lighting, photonic integrated circuits, optical design and semiconductor photonics devices.
• Communication Engineering - majors on the emerging field of advanced communication technologies, systems and networks.
