School of Electronic Engineering

MEng in Electronic Systems

Nanotechnology Major

Nanotechnology deals with the variety of material structures having dimensions of the order of a billionth of a metre. Nanoengineering relates to the skills required to produce functional electronic, photonic and biological devices and constituent structures of nanometre dimensions.

Nanoelectronics Major

There are numerous world class micro/nano electronic companies with operations in Ireland, including Intel, Analog Devices, Xilinx, Stratus, Xsil, Eblana, InTune, OMI, etc. In addition to this design activity, microelectronic engineering and manufacturing contributes significantly to the Irish economy with significant operations by Analog Devices in Limerick and Intel in Leixlip.

This new Major will place DCU at the vanguard of European teaching activity by providing one of the few formal postgraduate training courses in Nanoelectronics & Photonics in the world and assist in giving Ireland a competitive advantage through the education of engineers and scientists with leading edge skills.

M.Eng. participants taking this Major will be required to take four core modules, an applied project in the field, plus four other modules available from the wide range of modules on the taught M.Eng programme.

This Major is also available on the Electronic Systems Graduate Diploma programme.

Core Courses

  • Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment and Systems
  • Nano & Microelectronic Device Manufacturing
  • Characterisation Technology for Nanomaterials
  • Fundamentals of Photonic Devices
  • Applied Project
