This graduate program has a flexible structure that enables students to select the courses that best address their particular interests and formation needs, within a framework where students can fulfill the program's objectives, develop their final projects, and meet the graduate profile.
The study plan is made up of three curricular areas: Fundamentals; Research, Development and Innovation (RDI); and Electives.
The courses from this area define the program's disciplinary field and identity, and relate directly to the Lines of Generation and Application of Knowledge (LGAKs).
- Analog system design.
- Digital system design.
Research, development and innovation (RDI)
This area is closely related to the Advisory Support System. Its purpose is to provide students with the support they need to define, develop, draft and present their final projects. Some advisory sessions are collective, while others are individual.
- Four RDI seminars.
In this area students enter into dialogue with other areas of knowledge beyond their own discipline, with the aim of generating new knowledge and solving problems related to their final projects. This area draws on courses from all ITESO graduate programs and other universities having collaboration agreements with ITESO; you choose them in conversation with your advisor.
The elective graduate courses that are directly related to the program's Lines of Generation and Application of Knowledge are:
- Analog integrated circuit design
- Advanced analog integrated circuit design
- Advanced topics in analog integrated circuit design
- Advanced topics in VLSI design
- Digital integrated circuit design
- Digital system verification
- Microprocessor design
- Microprocessor architecture
- Operating system design and implementation
- Embedded systems
- Software engineering in embedded environments
- Operating system design for embedded systems
- Communication software development in embedded environments
- Digital signal processing
- Introduction to digital and analog communications
- Integrated circuit testing
- Printed circuit board design workshop

In order to complete the master's degree in electronic design, students must obtain 80 curricular credits, distributed as follows.
Credits required from the Fundamentals Area: 16
Credits required from the RDI Area: 16
Credits required from the Electives Area: 48
