Master of Science in Microsystems Engineering (MSc MSE)
Microsystems, MEMS, or micromachines: many names for an exciting and dynamic engineering discipline which combines expertise from areas as diverse as electrical engineering, biology, manufacturing technology and chemistry and thus allows engineers to conceive highly miniaturised, multi-functional systems used for medical and diagnostic purposes, in communication and information systems as well as in the automotive industry.
Description of the Degree Programme
MSE ins an interdisciplinary programme that builds on a basic knowledge in electrical and mechanical engineering. Although from the third semester on students can speicalise in two of the seven concentration areas, in the first year they have compulsory courses in all areas which play a role in microsystems engineering (such as micro-electronics, -mechanics, -fluidics, -optics and more).
Academic and Language Pre-requisites
- Bachelor's degree in Mechatronics, Mechanical, Electrical or Electronics Engineering (or equivalent), undergraduate knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry, technical mechanics, electronics and materials.
- Very good English language proficiency (IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 92)
