Course title and code: MSc in Semiconductor Photonics and Electronics EEET26
Who should take this course?
This Masters course in Semiconductor Photonics and Electronics is designed to complement the growing need for advanced skills in electronic and photonic component engineering in the commercial sector.
The course offers an opportunity to develop relevant skills for people with a numerate background who wish to work in this area. For those already working in the industry, it can be used update and focus specialist skills.
We aim to provide you with a high quality education in this area, carried out in a research-led environment with academic staff working at the frontiers of new knowledge.
Why study this Masters at the University of Sheffield?
The broad research environment at Sheffield covers the physics and engineering of semiconductor photonics and electronic materials and devices. From the physics of light-matter interaction through to device engineering, (design, fabrication, characterisation and experimentation) intended for a wide range of photonics and electronic applications. Modules are taught by both the Physics and Electronic and Electrical Engineering Departments.
The Compound Semiconductor Technology module is a practical course based around design, manufacture and characterization of a compound semiconductor component, utilising the world-class semiconductor fabrication facilities at Sheffield. This module allows you to be involved in all aspects of the manufacturing process, providing a unique hands-on learning experience and teaching useful skills for both the semiconductor manufacturing industry and further academic study.
Define your own project
You will also have the opportunity to partially define and shape your investigative MSc project from a broad list of topics. Projects can involve a blend of theoretical and practical aspects, to suit your preference and skills.
Graduates from this degree will have developed a broad understanding and hands-on experience in all aspects of semiconductor photonics and electronics from design and theorectical understanding, through semiconductor growth, materials characterisation, device fabrication and characterisation and back again.
