The Microsystems Engineering programme is offered at the University of Freiburg. Microsystems, MEMS, or micromachines: many names for an exciting and dynamic engineering discipline which combines expertise from areas as diverse as electrical engineering, biology, manufacturing technology and chemistry and thus allows engineers to conceive highly miniaturised, multi-functional systems used for medical and diagnostic purposes, in communication and information systems as well as in the automotive industry.
Although from the third semester on students can speicalise in two of the seven concentration areas, in the first year they have compulsory courses in all areas which play a role in microsystems engineering (such as micro-electronics, -mechanics, -fluidics, -optics and more).
