A two-year full-time course in English

Our Mission

The ongoing miniaturization in the microelectronics industry leads to systems that are now being referred to as nanoelectronic systems. Such systems offer a variety of applications, but their design and implementation is becoming increasingly complex. This is the motivation for the new master’s program in “Nanoelectronic Systems” with the key areas:

  • Technologies for nanoelectronic systems.
  • Design of nanoelectronic systems.
  • Applications of nanoelectronic systems.

The correlation/overlap between these areas will also be covered. The program not only focuses on traditional scaling (“More Moore”), but also ideas and concepts for “More than Moore” and “Beyond Moore”.

The practical training (offered in parallel with theoretical concepts) develops skillsets and expertise that can be used during internships, project work, and the master’s thesis which can be undertaken at companies or research institutes.

Admission Requirements

Bachelors in Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics, or similar with the following prerequisites:

  • Advanced mathematics.
  • Analog and digital circuit design.
  • Electro-magnetic fields.
  • Systems theory.
  • Operation and construction of basic electron devices. (e. g. diode, bipolar and MOS transistors)
  • Objectoriented programming.

One of the above prerequisites may be missing, but must be undertaken independently.

Certificate of proficiency in English on the level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)
