- ca. 20 minutes Presentation and 10 minutes questions and answers (50%)

Prerequisites (recommended)

Basic knowledge on semiconductor physics, semiconductor technology, and microsystem technology are of advantage, not a prerequisites.

Intended Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of the module, the students are able to work independently and in a scientific manner on a current topic from the field of micro-structured components and systems. They learn to structure the topic and to prepare a written elaboration on it. Finally, they are able to present their findings in an appealing presentation to a professional audience and to adequately answer and react to technical questions.

Content

Each participant works on an individual technical task in independent individual work. They will be supported by a supervisor who will introduce them to the seminar topic at the beginning of their work, assist them in the search for in-depth literature and give them advice on how to familiarize themselves with the topic. Moreover, the supervisor will provide support on how to structure and process the topic and how to prepare the presentation and the written elaboration.
