Study Program: Micro- and Nanoelectronics (English-Taught)

 

Starting in the winter semester 2017/2018, the study program will be taught completely in English!

The study program Micro- and Nanoelectronics comprises three semesters of lectures, tutorials and lab courses, along with an industrial internship of at least 18 weeks. A final master thesis is to be written in the fourth semester. In total, the program amounts to 120 ECTS credits.

The study program is mainly built up of three module groups, each containing a list of required elective courses: Module group A focuses on modern electronic device technology, module group B is dedicated to electronic circuits and architectures and module group C to system- and application aspects. The student chooses his or her courses out of the three groups, keeping in mind the requirements concerning the number of credits for the study program in total as well as for each module group.

The curriculum is complemented by a broad offer of laboratories, project works and seminars. In addition, there is an area of eligible courses which comprises the full master program of the faculty, hence including courses from all study programs. Finally there is an area of free elective courses from the entire RWTH course program, including language courses, courses in economy, law or soft-skill courses and block lectures.
