gliederung_si_en.gifThe Curriculum imparts to our students the knowledge and abilities for a future work in industry or research institutes.
The course is designed to provide the professional as well as the multidisciplinary competences which are required for a successful career. This includes knowledge in science and engineering as well as key qualifications.

Depending on the prerequisites of each individual student the first semester includes postgraduate foundation modules on advanced topics of applied physics or precision engineering.

From semester two the students choose three areas of specialisation out of the five areas: Micro- and Nanotechnologies, Smart Materials and Sensors, Scientific Computing, Metrology and Analytics, and Instrument Design.The language of instruction of the entire curriculum is English.

Semester three includes a research internship and semester 4 the work on a master’s thesis in which a research project or a high-tech development project is performed. The research work for the internship and the master’s thesis can be done in our university, in one of our partner universities, in a research centre or in a research department in industry.

It is jointly supervised by the according institution and our university.

The curriculum has a modular structure.

Credit points are granted following the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) for every successfully finished module. This system facilitates the recognition of course modules studied at different universities.
