About

The MSc in Microsystems Engineering complies with the Bologna Declaration for European education. It provides students with an excellent education in Microsystems Engineering and qualifies them for an industrial career in research and development or further studies in a PhD programme. The programme’s highly interdisciplinary curriculum offers a wide variety of electives, ensuring that students acquire a broad spectrum of the skills needed to keep abreast with this dynamic and rapidly evolving field.

Accreditation

ACQUIN accreditation until Sep 30, 2015

Programme Structure

The curriculum comprises courses in Assembly and packaging technology, Microelectronics, Micro-mechanics, MST design, Optical microsystems, Sensors, Signal processing, Dynamics of MEMS, Micro-actuators, biomedical microsystems, Micro-fluidics, MST design as well as Probability and statistics.

Concentrations are offered in the areas of

  • Circuits and systems
  • Design and simulation
  • Life sciences: Biomedical engineering
  • Life sciences: Lab-on-a-chip
  • Materials
  • Photonics
  • Process engineering
  • Sensors and actuators

In the second year, students are required to write a one-year Master's thesis, based on project work performed directly in a professor's research group, thus giving the graduate extensive, hands-on experience using state-of-the-art microsystems infrastructure.
