Microsystems Engineering is one of the most dynamic and interdisciplinary engineering fields. The Master of Science program in Microsystems Engineering (MSE) provides the educational basis for your success in this field. The MSE program is designed for highly qualified graduate students holding a Bachelor degree in engineering or science.
In the first year 12 mandatory courses provide the fundamental theoretical framework for a future career in Microsystems. These courses are designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base in the most important aspects of the field:
• MSE technologies and processes
- Bachelor's degree in mechatronics, electrical, electronics, or mechanical engineering, or in a closely related study field, previous knowledge in mathematics, chemistry, physics, electronics, electrical and mechanical engineering and materials
- English language proficiency (IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 92 or Pearson PTE Academic 58)
For EU nationals: 155 Euro per semester
For Non-EU nationals: 1655 per semester
After completing my Bachelor's degree in computer engineering, I wanted to continue my education, acquiring the best possible intellectual tools for addressing real-life engineering problems, the kind of problems where standard and known solutions are no longer useful.
The structure and organisation of the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) in Freiburg is unique. The numerous laboratories cover virtually all the fields in microsystems. The high academic quality, the excellent technical facilities, the extensive library: all these combine to form an environment which allows Master's students to study at the technological and frontiers edge of knowledge. The programme and the faculty in Freiburg are such that students feel cared for and learn all they need for their future research careers.
Aside from my rigorous training, I have enjoyed every moment I have spent in this wonderful city, an amazing place in summer or winter!
After obtaining my Bachelor's degree, I wanted to learn more about MEMS technology. there are many universities in Germany, but I chose Freiburg, since it has one of the largest MEMS research institutions in Europe. The facilities and the library are excellent and the large variety of research groups means that any aspect of MEMS technology can be addressed.
During my first year, I took many courses on the fundamentals of MEMS, including mechanics, optics and sensors. No matter in what area of MEMS you specialize, in-depth knowledge is essential, and that is what I received here. There are numerous practical courses, such as the cleanroom laboratory, which gave me hands-on experience. In my second year, I was able to choose some concentration courses in areas in which I was interested; those were well-organized and essential for my future career.
In addition, Freiburg is a very beautiful city with clean air and a comfortable climate. On a sunny day, you can go hiking in the Black Forest or have a barbecue with your friends. I believe everyone who comes to study here will enjoy Freiburg.
