Microsystems Engineering is one of the most dynamic and interdiscipliinary engineering fields. The Master of Science program in Microsystems Engineering (MSE) offered at the University of Freiburg provides the educational basis for your success in this field.
The Master's programme in Microsystems Engineering is designed for highly qualified graduate students holding a Bachelor's degree in engineering or science. MEMS is an exciting engineering discipline which combines expertise from areas as diverse as electrical engineering, biology, manufacturing technology and chemistry and thus allows engineers to conceive highly miniaturized, multi-functional systems with capabilities limited only by the imagination. Retinal implants to help the blind to see; a clinical blood analysis laboratory on a micro-chip; autonomous optical systems for imaging inside the body; these are just a few examples of the roles microsystems will play in our lives.
The Institute of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) at the University of Freiburg was founded in 1995. It features modern facilities for research and teaching including a cleanroom, electronics, optics and chemistry laboratories, robotics laboratories and mobile computer pools for students. The professors at IMTEK strive to give you the best teaching and personal counselling possible. Students are perceived as individual human beings and not as ID numbers. Each MSE student will be assigned a faculty member as his mentor.
* Study at one of the world´s top academic Microsystems research departments
* Be involved in actual research of renowned professors
* Benefit from state-of-the-art equipment on a modern campus
* Live in one of Germany´s most appealing cities
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
* 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.
Applicants need to have a Bachelor's degree in Engineering (e.g. Eletrical, Electronics, Mechatronics, Mechanical Engineering).
The following documents are required for application:
* Application form
* A certified copy of your undergraduate diploma. If you have not yet completed your undergraduate studies, a certified transcript of records is sufficient
* A certified copy of your grade transcript.
* Proof of English proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS or Cambridge Certificate)
* GRE score (strongly recommended)
* Curriculum vitae or résumé
* Personal Statement of intent
* At least one recommendation letter from a university professor to be submitted in a separate envelope, sealed and signed by the referee
* APS certificate (for Chinese and Vietnamese applicants only)
The language of instruction is English.
