Microelectronics and Microsystems

Microelectronics has not only triggered the enormous growth in information and communication technologies but it has also become an important factor in many other areas. In recent years, technologies originally developed for microelectronics have been increasingly applied to the fabrication of miniaturised systems in electromechanical, electro-optical, analytical or biomedical applications. The new discipline is called microsystem technology. The future development will certainly result in the integration of microsystem components with microelectronic devices. In order to be able to cope with this challenge the TUHH has introduced the innovative master´s program in microelectronics and microsystems which combines both aspects. The program consists of various required elective courses covering the fields of communication, computer science and signal processing.

The program is organized as a two-year course (four semesters) which starts on 1st October each year. It includes two semesters of lectures and practical courses, 10 weeks of industrial training during the lecture-free period following the 2nd semester, and two semesters devoted to work in a research team (project work) and to the preparation of a master´s thesis. The "Master of Science" degree will be awarded. Language of the program is English.
