Course Information

Nanotechnology is revolutionising electronic engineering.

Nanotechnology encompasses the design and study of devices on a scale of less than 100nm - barely a few hundred atoms across. From ultra-high-speed processors to super accurate sensors, nano-scale devices are transforming science across a broad spectrum of fields, including medicine and the environment.

Drawing on the expertise of nanotechnology research groups at York, this course emphasises those areas of nanotechnology directly relevant to contemporary electronics. It forms part of a broad and strong core programme in electronics and provides ‘hands-on’ opportunities to build and characterise nanoscale devices.

You'll graduate with the knowledge required to operate with confidence - as a designer, researcher or manager - in the rapidly-expanding world of nanotechnology.

Year 1

Year 1 provides you with a grounding in electronic principles, circuits, components and devices. There's a strong emphasis on mathematics and computing, including learning the C and Python programming languages. You'll also develop your practical skills, designing and building complete products as part of laboratories and group projects. You'll be introduced to the key concepts and applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Core modules

Your modules will cover topics such as:

  • Engineering Design

  • Analogue Electronics and Physics

  • Mathematics 

  • Digital Circuits 

  • Introduction to Programming

  • Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Year 2

In Year 2 you'll learn to analyse and design hardware and software systems. You'll study material including nanofabrication and analysis, algorithms, electromagnetism and Java programming. An advanced construction project gives you the opportunity to apply your skills of design, engineering, problem-solving and project management.

Core modules

Your modules will cover topics such as:

  • Design, Construction and Test

  • Java Programming

  • Engineering Mathematics, Signals and Systems

  • Noise, Waves and Fields

  • Digital Design with HDL

  • Semiconductor Devices and Circuits

  • Nanofabrication and nanoanalysis 

Year 3

​In Year 3 you'll study a range of advanced core and option modules. You can focus on your interests, or investigate a new aspect of electronic engineering, including nanoelectronics. Throughout the year you'll work on a major individual project, using the knowledge and skills you've developed to research and design a solution to an engineering challenge.​

Core modules

Your core modules will cover topics such as:

  • Control 

  • Communication Systems

  • Applications of EM

  • Principles of DSP

  • Nanoelectronics

  • Photonics and Nanophotonics

The BEng Individual Project gives you a chance to put the skills and understanding you've developed into practice. You'll undertake an independent project: from specification, through initial feasibility studies, to production and testing. Projects from previous years have included:

  • radio-controlled ultra-small airplane

  • programmable environmental chamber

  • measuring and predicting solar output

  • magnetic biosensors for future medicine

  • visual tuning feedback for choirs

  • an electronic Alethiometer

Many of the projects on offer are closely aligned to our current research, giving you the chance to work alongside world-class academics at the forefront of the field.

Option modules

Option modules may include:

  • Analogue Engineering

  • State Space and Digital Control

  • Digital Communication Systems

  • LAN and Internet Protocols

  • Mobile Communication Systems

  • Accounting and Finance
