Special features regarding teachingThanks to the close cooperation with Bosch, the teaching content is geared to the current requirements of industry and focuses on a special combination of power electronics and microelectronics. A complete product is developed with an industry-like team set-up during a two-semester project practical. The chips that are developed will be produced. A degree from the University of Stuttgart qualifies for a subsequent doctorate without additional conditions. The organisation of working student activities at Bosch are supported.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe university's strong international orientation means that there are various possibilities for periods abroad at partner universities or at Bosch (USA), either in the form of a (voluntary) internship or to write the final dissertation.

Special features regarding the equipmentThe department has excellent laboratory equipment in the field of power- and microelectronics. In addition to the usual measuring instruments, there are a wafer prober, a laser cutter, semi-automatic bonders, ThermoChucks and much more. The "Electronic Design Automation" chair is a member of the academic network of the global market leader for tools Cadence (as lead institution since 2018). This gives the programme a complete industrial environment for chip design. Chips can be designed and manufactured in various semiconductor processes.
Special features regarding research and developmentThe course is accommodated in a "teaching and research centre" (LFZ). The teaching and research centre has 3 professors with about 20 doctoral students who work on the latest research topics in power and microelectronics and design automation as part of funded projects and on behalf of industry. Some examples include: Fully integrated AC/DC converter ("chip to socket"), self-diagnostics for aging effects on the chip, highly compact battery chargers, procedural automation processes for analog IC design. The research results regularly win awards at specialist conferences.
Support for foundersThe Center for Entrepreneurship offers university-wide advice such as on writing applications, jobs, different mandatory elective modules (2-5 ECTS), workshops, events, excursions and competitions, which students of the Technology also take part in. In the 2018 summer semester the first one-week start-up summer school for technology students was held, which was part of an excursion to Ukraine. In addition, awareness-raising workshops are held in the individual degree courses to raise interest in the topic among students.
Other special featuresA close partnership is in place with the Electrical Engineering department of the University of Stuttgart. Students of the course can attend courses at the University of Stuttgart and take exams there, which are recognised as part of the mandatory elective module. There are no classes on Wednesdays. This makes things easier for student trainees and student assistants. An individual part-time study model is offered. The programme regularly awards prizes and scholarships.
