The SLTC Research University, Colombo is calling for applications from suitable candidates for Master of Science programmes offered in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, UK (LJMU). Under this partnership, SLTC offers two specialised postgraduate programmes, MSc in Embedded Systems and IC Design, MSc in Wireless Communications. The university has enabled both full-time as well as part-time study options for both programmes. Full-time students may complete their degree in one year whereas part-time study options allow them to complete the programme in one and a half years. Conducted virtually by a faculty comprising distinguished academic members representing both institutes, the programmes cover a wide range of current content delivered via tutorials, seminars, activity-based learning, group discussions, panel sessions and inverted classroom learning.
This programme is suited for professionals who wish to further their career prospects in related industries including, those who wish to obtain a UK postgraduate qualification to better their professional prospects overseas. It is also an ideal opportunity for those graduates of related disciplines who wish to engage in further studies.
MSc in Wireless Communications
This MSc programme in Wireless Communications has been specially designed for those who wish to be a part of this ever evolving and growing industry, which has seen a great increase in demand, both at home and abroad. The programme benefits from the research strengths of SLTC Research University, especially so through its Centre for Telecommunication Research (CTR). SLTC Research University has earned an international reputation for pioneering research in several key fundamental and experimental work areas, including wireless communication for underwater wireless, 6G, coding theory, advanced non-orthogonal multiple access technologies and radio frequency energy harvesting technologies.
MSc Embedded Systems and IC Design
This programme has been designed to cover the advanced concepts of building embedded systems using high-end microchips, designing ICs with custom embedded system designs, and testing the built systems with industry-standard tools. Whilst the focus on the IC design concepts makes this programme unique for Sri Lanka, SLTC’s in-house experts in nanoelectronics deliver advanced knowledge on state-of-the-art CMOS devices and systems, fabrication, and testing of microelectronic devices and in the latest consumer electronic products. The programme is also associated with the national research lab for embedded systems in Madurai.
These MSc programmes have been designed to develop both technical and managerial skills required to succeed in a chosen career. As an MSc Wireless Communications graduate, one may progress to becoming a Wireless Network Design Engineer, a Wireless Communications Engineer, or a Senior Engineer in the fields of wireless systems, sensors and data analytics and related industries. MSc Embedded Systems and IC Design graduates progress onto lucrative careers due to the acute need for competent computer engineers and embedded systems experts with the rapid expansion of application areas. Career prospects for those in this fieldare excellent, in all areas of the manufacturing world, throughout Europe and particularly at top Tech companies.
LJMU has an excellent employability record with 96% (Graduate Outcomes, 2018/19) of postgraduates in work or further study within 15 months post-graduation. The applied learning techniques and strong industry connections prepare students for the workplace and help them to apply their knowledge in a real-world context.
The SLTC Research University is Sri Lanka’s only research-based, corporate-backed nonstate university, with an eminent faculty of renowned academics and industry leaders who bring a wealth of operational know-how and knowledge to the classroom. Academic and other resources of Liverpool University in the United Kingdom (UK), further strengthen the academic credentials and learning experiences of these postgraduate programmes. MSc in Embedded Systems and IC Design, and MSc in Wireless Communications programmes, offered by the School of Postgraduate Studies of the university, not only prepare graduates for the industry but also provide them with opportunities for further professional and personal development.
