Microelectronics with a Year in Industry MEng (Hons)
Develop your electronic engineering expertise towards an understanding of the properties of the semiconductor devices and circuits that underpin current and future electronic systems. All major aspects of semiconductor device technology are covered giving you a broad understanding of this key field.

Core subjects include: integrated circuit technology and basic VLSI design; electronic device design; and semiconductor light-emitting diodes and laser diodes.

All our first-year students take part in the faculty's Global Engineering Challenge, working with students from other engineering disciplines to solve a real-world problem. All second years get to work on a week-long project devised by one of our industry partners. You'll also get the chance to work with an engineering company through the Sheffield Industrial Project Scheme.

In the third year, you'll carry out your own research project, supervised by an academic.

You will spend your fourth year working full-time for an engineering company. This will put your study into context and enhance your career prospects. You pay a reduced fee to the University for that year and you get paid a salary.

In your final year, you will work as part of a multidisciplinary team on a research project led by an academic with industry input.
