What are Micro- and Nanotechnologies?

Micro- and Nanotechnologies are a part of nearly every aspect of modern life. The border between the two technologies is fluid; microelectronics has been conducted on a scale measured in nanometers for some time. Applications and inovative products based on micro- and nanotechnologies are 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 minaturization alone, theintegration 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.
The advances in minaturization come at a tremendous price. In order to manage the enormous technological and financial commitment, research is ongoing in all branches of micro- and nanotechnology to replace the current „top-down“ method, which was adapted from solid state technology. This older technology employs lithography on the macroscopic level to structure processes. The “bottom-up” procedure which holds promise as a replacement makes use of principles such as self-organization and molecular recognition (similar to biological systems and already in use in supramolecular chemistry) to create nanostructures. 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 fileds of biology and chemistry are leading to further minaturisazing and systems integration.
Nanotechnology is the interface technology of the 21st century.  
 

The AFM (Atomic Force Microscope) has become an essential tool in the research of the smallest structures. 

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

Micro- and Nanotechnology as Career Opportunities

Top
Traditionally, the semi-conductor industry has been one of the most important sectors for graduates in the fields of microtechnology Unfortunately, the semi-conductor sector has been dependent upon economic cycles. This may be less of a problem with nanotechnology in the future.Today, microtechnology and, especially, nanotechnology have found application in nearly every branch of industry. There is an increasingly broad range of opportunities for graduates of our course of study in Micro- and Nanotechnoly in both private industry and goverment sponsored research. For the field of nanotechnologz alone, there is an estimated global market share of one billion US dollars already by 2015 and a stude for the BMBF (W. Luther et al., 2004, Nanotechnologie als wirtschaftlicher Wachstumsmarkt - Innovations Innovations- und Technikanalyse, VDI-TZ, Düsseldorf) sees an annual need for professionals competent in the field of nanotechnology in Germany alone at between 5,000 and 8,000.
Gradutes of the course of study Micro- and Nanotechnlogy at the Munich University of Applied Sciences are to be found in all the most important sectors of micro- and nanotechnology. These include the fields of semi-conductors and electronics, in the IT sector, aerospace and space flight, the automobile industry, the chemical industries, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and heath industries, optical and laser based technologies as well as at universtities and government research institutions. The professional responsibilities of these 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. Approximately one-third of the graduates go on from their successful completion of this course of study to doctoral and post graduate work at other universities.  

Micro- and Nanotechnology in Munich

 
Both academically as well as industrially, the metropolitan area of Munich has become established as one of the most important locations for the fields of micro- and nanotechnlogy in Germany and Europe. Academically, advanced research facilities such as the Center for NanoScience, the "Excellence Network Nanobiotechnology", the NanoTUM and the Nanosystems Initiative Munich, which is supported under the Excellence Initiative of both the Federal and State governments and of which the Department of Precision- and Micro-Engineering, Engineering Physics at the Munich University of Applied Technologies is also a member. Outstanding industrial firms such as Siemens, Infineon Technologies, EADS, Olympus as well as a number of small and mid-sized firms are located in the metropolitan area. Over the last years, a significant number of successful start-up firms have arrisen from the academic environment Munich provides. The Department of Precision- and Micro-Engineering, Engineering Physics, together with our instructors, has outstanding connections to the industry providing graduates of the Course of Study Micro- and Nanotechnolgy with excellent networking opportuntites.   

The Advantages of the Master’s Course of Study in Micro- and Nanotechnology

Top
  • Further professional qualification in a growth oriented field of technology.
