Interdisciplinary work and research
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.

Microsystems engineering- a versatile technology that industries can no longer do without
The products we deal with on a daily basis are becoming ever smaller, more powerful, smarter, more connected and more independent. Often, however, the sensors and systems that are in these everyday objects are so miniaturized that they are nearly invisible. That is precisely the reason they have taken a foothold in most industries.

A lot of the products and systems within such sectors as the automobile industry, medical services, communications and energy are unimaginable today without microsystems engineering, making your career as a microsystems engineer a versatile and exciting choice!

Your benefits as a Microsystems Engineering student:

  • Study at one of the world’s largest and leading academic research centers in the field of microsystems engineering
  • With around 440 students and 22 professors, we offer an excellent student-teacher ratio for optimal supervisory support.
  • State-of-the-art equipment with a designated clean room: Here you will become familiar with working in this special laboratory environment.
  • Research and teaching are closely intertwined so that the latest research findings flow directly into teaching. It benefits our students immensely who get to actively participate in solving future societal and technical issues.

The English taught Master's degree program in Microsystems Engineering has been designed for German and international graduates holding a bachelor's degree in electronics, mechatronics, (bio-)medical engineering or any other related engineering discipline.

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

Central Student Advising Office


The central student advisory service - the Central Student Advising Office (ZSB) provides information and advice on all questions that may arise prior to, at the beginning of, and during a course of study. If you are seeking subject-specific advice in addition to this, you can also contact the respective subject academic advisor.
