Microsystem Engineering 

Microsystems Engineering

Microsystems engineering makes our lives healthier, happier, more secure, comfortable, more varied and, not to mention, easier. It enables us to manufacture tiny microcomponents that are 100 times finer than a human hair. It makes it possible, for example, to create microsensors and actuators. Combined with electronics, intelligent microsystems that enable ever more complex functions in the smallest of spaces can emerge.

Microsystems alter our world

Microsystems can be found almost everywhere without your even knowing it:

  • In the car: they trigger airbags, measure whether a vehicle is spinning, and help keep it safe when the roads are slippery.
  • In communications technology: our innovations are helping to make the devices even smaller and more versatile.
  • In medicine: they provide us with a whole laboratory on a microchip and find themselves in prostheses and implants.
  • In the energy sector: our researchers set new standards and enable systems that operate independently without any external power supply.

Small technology with huge potential

Microsystems engineering is the engineering discipline with the broadest focus: elements from mathematics, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and materials science form the cornerstones of exciting innovations. We can help you obtain the necessary skills to develop these versatile systems for the applications of today and tomorrow.

Your benefits as a Microsystems Engineering student:

  • With around 440 students and 22 professors, we offer an excellent student-teacher ratio for optimal supervisory support.
  • An interdisciplinary course of study with a well-balanced combination of theory and practice.
  • State-of-the-art equipment with a designated clean room: Here you will become familiar with working in this special laboratory environment.
  • Study at one of the world's largest and leading academic research centers in the field of microsystems engineering.
  • The majority of our classes are recorded. You can always repeat the material, independent of time and place, for exam preparation, for instance.
