Each module contains 3 ECTS. You choose a total of 10 modules/30 ECTS in the following module categories:
- 12-15 ECTS in technical scientific modules (TSM)
TSM modules teach profile-specific specialist skills and supplement the decentralised specialisation modules.
- 9-12 ECTS in fundamental theoretical principles modules (FTP)
FTP modules deal with theoretical fundamentals such as higher mathematics, physics, information theory, chemistry, etc. They will teach more detailed, abstract scientific knowledge and help you to bridge the gap between abstraction and application that is so important for innovation.
- 6-9 ECTS in context modules (CM)
CM modules will impart additional skills in areas such as technology management, business administration, communication, project management, patent law, contract law, etc.

Based on selected examples this modul imparts the scientific and technological basics as well as the possibilities and the perspectives of the micro- and nanotechnologies. The students should become sensitve to the enormous potential of applications of this field and acquire a certain ability in handling it.
Basic knowledge in chemistry and physics
- the students know the the scientific and technological basics of this technology
- the students have a general unterstanding of the numerous fields of the micro- and nanotechnologies and their applications
- the students are able to combine the advantages of scaling and materials with the desired functions of the device.
- based on selected nanodevices the students develop the ability to apply specific nano properties
