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.

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 central academic advisory service - the Central Academic 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.
