The Master by Research programme in Electronics is the right choice for students who wish to specialize in electronics and aim for a career in research or in the electronics industry. During the programme, you work together with researchers on a research problem in one of Mid Sweden University’s largest research environments. You mix your research with the academic studies you need to solve the problem.

As a student, you are part of a research team at the research centre STC (Sensible Things that Communicate) that develops sensor-based systems and services in the fields of electronics and computer technology. Together with researchers, you take part in a research project and work both independently and together with others.

The education consists of both courses on an advanced level and project work, and ends with an individual Master’s thesis during the last semester. Having completed the programme, students should be able to understand and assess the possibilities and limitations of different technologies. Projects may include areas like detectors, readout electronics, signal processing, optics, power electronics or energy harvesting.
