Lessons from Ten Years of the International Master’s Program in System-on-Chip

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceedingpeer-review


In July 2000 the five-year Swedish national “Socware Research & Education Program” was started. One of the aims of the program was to develop an innovative unique educational curriculum in System-on-Chip design. The program was targeted at undergraduate and graduate. In total the program received USD $15 million funding. In 2005 the program entered a new phase; more than 500 Master’s students were admitted and 30 PhD students were funded. Cooperation between the System-on-Chip Master’s programs in Lund, Linköping, and Stockholm was already well- established and the program continued in all three locations as an international Master of Science program in System-on-Chip, with local funding from the participating universities. Between 2003 and 2013 there were 3500 applicants to the program in Lund, an average of 350 applicants per year, of these 250 (8%) were accepted. This paper focuses on the international Master of Science Program in System-on-Chip at Lund University, Sweden.
