Why choose this programme option?
Are you interested in electronics, and find measuring techniques and instrumentation exciting? Would you like to contribute to research, or to advance technology in important fields such as health, medicine or energy resources? If so, the programme option Microelectronics and sensor technology would be a good fit for you.
A brief overview of the programme
Microelectronics and sensor technology provide you with advanced knowledge about analog and digital components and circuits. This programme option offers thesis on measuring systems used in medical technology, cars, consumer electronics, telecommunication, research and industry. Perhaps you are interested in computers and how they are constructed? All these areas can be subjects of your thesis in this option.
We offer many experimental theses, but you may also write a more theoretical or computational thesis if that suits your interests. You could also work on a thesis that combines these methods.
In the course FYS4231 – Sensors and Measurement Technology, you will be working on a large scale research project where the end result will be a published scientific article. This is valuable experience when you work on your own project.
Master's thesis in electronic measurement systems or instrumentation
Possible master's theses could involve constructing electronic measuring systems, such as integrated circuits or embedded systems, or working with instrumentation in medical technology, space research, underwater research and many other interesting and exciting fields. Many previous master's theses have resulted in commercial products and technical solutions used in large research projects today.
Within your two years of study you will have taken both oral and written exams. This will give you good training in presenting data orally before your final exam and before going into working life. We also host regular meetings where academic staff and students discuss and present their work. All of these activities prepare you for presenting and discussing your research for others.
As a student in this programme, you become part of a relatively small reseach group. We focus on making a good study environment where our students can thrive. The meetings where students and academic staff present their recent work fosters a good work connection between both employees and students.
