Micro- and Nanotechnology – At a Glance

Interdisciplinary and practice-oriented

Micro- and Nanotechnologies are a part of nearly every aspect of modern life. Innovative products are by far not limited to electronic components: Products on the market range from dirt-shedding paints and scratch-free surface coatings to mechatronic systems such as the accelerometers which trigger airbags. Clinical applications such as nano particles are used in cancer treatment. Components such as biochips and microfluid systems are essential to modern pharmaceutical research.

Not only continuous miniaturization alone, the integration of mechanical, electronic, and optical components in the smallest possible space is an important trend in all fields of endeavor. The „lab-on-a-chip“ is an example of this trend. Both the latest discoveries and methods arising from the field of nanophysics are being applied successfully in, for instance, medicine and the life sciences.

Additionally, concepts and tools from the fields of biology and chemistry are leading to further miniaturisation and systems integration. Nanotechnology is the interface technology of the 21st century.

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology –  Qualification Profile

Educational objective

The objective of the Master’s Studies in Micro- and Nanotechnologies is, based on the interface between the natural and engineering sciences, to promote knowledge of products, research, and applications for the smallest of structures and systems.

Subjects, based on fundamentals in physics, are stronger represented. By their choice of electives students can specialize in a certain field.

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology –  Professional Profile

Career opportunities

The professional responsibilities of our graduates cover the entire range of careers and responsibilities in these high-tech fields of endeavor. The career opportunities include independent planning, coordination, and supervision of research and development projects, management functions, and industrial consulting.The interdisciplinary nature of this course of study provides the graduates with the best possible qualifications for the increasingly important interfacing positions of modern industry.

Graduates can be found in all important fields of micro- and nanotechnology, e.g. in

  • semiconductor and electronics industry,
  • information technology,
  • aerospace,
  • automotive industry,
  • chemical industry,
  • biotechnology or pharmaceutical industry,
  • optics and laser technology,
  • research institutions.      

Approximately one-third of the graduates go on from their successful completion of this course of study to doctoral and post graduate work.

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology – Made in Munich

Munich as a location for micro- and nanotechnology

The Munich metropolitan area evolved into one of the centers for research in micro- and nanotechnology within Germany and Europe.

Outstanding industrial firms such as Siemens, Infineon Technologies, or Airbus, as well as a number of small and mid-sized firms are located here. Further, over the last years, a significant number of successful start-up firms have arrisen from the academic environment Munich provides.

The Department of Applied Sciences and Mechatronics, together with our instructors, has outstanding connections to academic institutions and industry and provides graduates of the Course of Study Micro- and Nanotechnolgy with excellent networking opportunties.

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology – Cooperations

Partners in research and industry

The Master program Micro- and Nanotechnology is embedded into a strong research environment. This becomes evident by advanced research facilities such as the Center for NanoScience, the "Excellence Network Nanobiotechnology", the NanoTUM, and the Nanosystems Initiative Munich, which is supported by the Excellence Initiative of both the Federal and State governments and of which the Department of Applied Sciences and Mechatronics at the Munich University of Applied Sciences is also a member.

The laboratories of the program have projects with academic and industrial partners. Next to joint research projects, the good network with industry is also reflected by lecturers coming from the industrial partners.

Furthermore, the Master's course is strongly supported by an Industrial Advisory Board, which includes representatives from companies form southern Germany internationally recognized as leaders.

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology – Course of Study

Full flexibility

To enable a flexible course of study, the compulsory courses are typically offered in summer and winter term, so that students can pick up their studies in both semesters.

Students, who have not studied physics or related programs before, or professionals, who spent some time outside the university, can attend mathematics and physics crash courses in the beginning.

Professionals as well as students with a Bachelor´s degree who plan an early career entry have the possibility to enroll for part-time studies. If you want to read more opinions about and experiences with the program, have a look at the university´s Master´s blog (only in German).

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology – International

Out in the world

The program sets high value on internationalization. Many courses are offered in English, and during the colloquium students give at least one presentation in English.

Furthermore, a good network to foreign universities and research institutions exists, which offer lectures and final theses in the field of micro- and nanotechnology. For an easier planning of the stay abroad, an overview over partner institutions with a course offer in English suiting the program in Munich can be downloaded.

The optional elective English in Science and Technology complements the course catalog and gives students the opportunity to enhance their language and technical skills for the international market. 

 

Micro- and Nanotechnology – Application

Prerequisites for admission & application

In order to enroll in the program, you must meet the following qualifications. You have either achieved or will soon achieve a Bachelor´s Degree or similar Diploma in one of the fields of the natural or engineering sciences, respectively a similar field with a final grade better than the equivalent German grade "good". Your degree work was attained either at a German university or at a foreign school which is properly accredited.

The Bachelor's degree covers at least 180 ECTS credit points and at least six theoretical semesters. The completion o a practical semester or an industrial internship of at least 18 weeks during the Bachelor's studies is required.

Applicants who do not meet the grade requirement have to proof their technical qualification in an oral entrance examination. This examination is offered after the correct application in due time and extends over 20 to 30 minutes. The entrance examination serves as proof for sufficient background skills in mathematics, fundamentals in physics, basics in semiconductor technology, and practial experience. The examination is held by two full professors. For details, please refer to the Study and Examination Regulations (in German).

Most lectures are held in German, but a number of courses is offered in English so that with little German skills in the beginning the program can be attended. Nevertheless, competency in spoken and written German is recommended.

Courses start: Annually on October 1st or March 15th – Application period

  • for courses starting October 1st: May 1st to June 15th,
  • for courses starting March 15th: November 15th to January 15th. Application
