Lehre

Prof. Karnutsch lehrt an der Fakultät für Elektro- und Informationstechnik der Hochschule Karlsruhe. In diesem Rahmen hält er Vorlesungen in den Studiengängen Elektrotechnik – Sensorik (B), Sensorsystemtechnik (M), Sensor Systems Technology (M), sowie Elektrotechnik – Informationstechnik (B) und Elektrotechnik – Automatisierungstechnik (B).

Der Schwerpunkt seiner Lehrtätigkeit liegt im Bereich der (Opto-)Sensorik, die sich durch die Entwicklung und Anwendung intelligenter optischer und photonischer Sensorsysteme auszeichnet. Dieses hochinteressante und höchst innovative Betätigungsfeld ist für IONAS von elementarer Bedeutung.

Das Studium der Sensorik – Was sind die Inhalte?

Das Studium der Sensorik ist stark naturwissenschaftlich geprägt. Die Studierenden lernen sehr viel über unterschiedliche Messprinzipien und die Verarbeitung der Messergebnisse.

Woher weiß das iPhone, dass es gedreht wurde?
Was kann ich mit einem Laser alles messen?
Wieso braucht man Sensoren zur Gasanalyse in modernen Heizungen?
Wie kann man ohne Röntgenstrahlung in den menschlichen Körper sehen?

All diese spannenden Fragen und noch vieles mehr finden eine Antwort im Studiengang Sensorik an der Hochschule Karlsruhe.
