Sensor Systems Technology, German Master
Sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing - sensor systems technology represents the realization of all the human senses technologically.
Sensors are essential for intelligent systems and therefore a vital component of most technical disciplines. Take the following examples, in which sensor systems all play a key role: vehicles (e.g. in safety systems such as airbags, ABS or RSC), medical technology (e.g., ECG, EEG, ultra-sound, X-ray, MRI), environmental technology (e.g. for the monitoring of waterways, soil, and air), automation in process and manufacturing technology (e.g. in industrial robots), or in biological and chemical process technology.
The Faculty offers a three-semester Master degree in Sensorsystemtechnik (Sensor Systems Technology). In this program all lectures and practical trainings are conducted in German.
International and inter-cultural
Students of the English-language Master's degree program come from every corner of the globe, making for an interesting and stimulating inter-cultural atmosphere. The Faculty has worldwide contacts with companies and universities where students can complete their traineeships and even write their thesis. This international experience is highly valued by industry, increasing employment potential, and it can be supported financially by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (German Academic Exchange Service).
Career prospects for graduates are excellent. Given the sharply increasing demand for intelligent systems, many companies are currently establishing or expanding their own sensor systems departments. Graduates also find careers in other areas such as applied computer science or control engineering, which is feasible due to the broad-based training and the possibility of specialization through elective courses.
In addition to the rapidly expanding market for sensor systems technology, another reason for outstanding career prospects is the fact that the German sensor systems industry has proven to be very successful, both nationally and internationally, due to its structure, its close relationship with its customers, and its application-specific orientation.
