Universities and colleges educate the engineers of the future. We have excellent ties with the Institute for Microintegration (IFM) of the University of Stuttgart. Prof. Dr.-Eng. André Zimmermann, Hahn-Schickard's Head of Institute in Stuttgart, also jointly directs the IFM and conducts fundamental research in the field of reliability of microtechnical components there. In particular, this includes the investigation of damage mechanisms, as well as holistic model-based design for construction, housing, and connection technology for microsystems. The IFM is responsible for teaching the specialized subject of microsystem technology in the masters program in mechanical/micro engineering, instrument¬engineering, and technical optics at the University of Stuttgart. www.ifm.uni-stuttgart.de
We are extremely well-connected with the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) at the University of Freiburg. IMTEK currently has 24 professorships, about 370 scientific employees, and approximately 650 students. This makes it one of the world's largest and leading academic research centers in the field of microsystem technology. Research is focused on energy-autonomous microsystems, smart systems integration, lab-on-a-chip and medical microsystems, smart materials, surfaces and processes, as well as optical systems. The Hahn-Schickard institute directors of the locations of Villingen-Schwenningen and Freiburg, Prof. Dr.-Eng. Yiannos Manoli and Prof. Dr.-Eng. Roland Zengerle, direct the Fritz Huettinger Chair of Microelectronics and the Laboratory for MEMS Applications at IMTEK. www.imtek.de http://www.imtek.de/
Hahn-Schickard and the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg collaborate on the research and development of software and communication solutions using embedded systems. In a delegation within the context of this partnership, Prof. Dr. Ing. Axel Sikora, professor of embedded systems and communication electronics at the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg, will serve simultaneously as head of the area “Software Solutions” and as deputy director of the Hahn-Schickard in Villingen-Schwenningen starting in January 2016.
Founded in 1964 as a "National School of Engineering" Offenburg University of Applied Sciences quickly established itself as a high-performance educational institution with a practical orientation. Today our University forms a thriving community, with more than 4,500 students on two campuses. We offer Bachelor's and Master's degrees in these four departments: Business and Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechanical and Process Engineering, and Media and Information.
