Microsystems Engineering: Technology for a smart world!

Make the world a better place Address the complex challenges facing our society in the areas of climate change, energy conservation, pollution, biodiversity, resource efficiency and biomedicine through innovative solutions.

Engineering science of the future Energy and environmental technology, medical technology, sustainable mobility or smart applications in information technology and telecommunications - no industry can do without Microsystems Engineering any more.

Active participation in the development of high-tech technologies With a broad engineering background, you will not only deal with technical matters. You will also adress aspects of sustainability like energy efficiency, environment or resilience. You will work in an interdisciplinary way and develop forward-looking technologies for present and future generations.

The miniaturisation and integration of many functions in a minimal space creates small intelligent systems that achieve great things. Our goal is to develop solutions that help to make life more sustainable, healthier, safer, more comfortable, more versatile and, last but not least, easier.

Biomedical Microsystems

  • Mobile diagnostics with innovative minilabs
  • Personalised therapies
  • Intelligent implants
Intelligent Integrated Microsytems
  • Sensors record energy and material flows
  • Reduction of energy consumption reduces CO2 emissions
  • Electrical energy is harvested from the environment
  • Technical systems take direct measures against climate change
Intelligent Materials and Bio-Inspired Systems
  • Microelectronics
  • Glass injection moulding
  • Biogenic materials
  • Surfaces with adjustable wetting behaviour
  • Crystals for generating and manipulating laser light, e.g. for fast and acurate sensor technology for industrial quality assurance
  • Optical chips, e.g. for integrated distance sensors for autonomous driving
  • Novel laser scanning microscopes with super-resolution or light-sheet as well as optical tweezers, optical traps and particle tracking to better understand living cells, particle dynamics and infectious diseases
  • Innovative micro-optics, e.g. to pack highly functional cameras into a smartphone
  • Fluidic optics, e.g. to build a microscope from water drops

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

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 Academic Advising Office

The University's Service Centre Studies - Central Student Advisory Service (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.
