Degree-seeking students

Master programme Electrical and Microsystems Engineering (MEM)

MEM can be studied in German or English and is supposed to be studied in three semesters. Our Master degree programme places a strong focus on electronics and semiconductor technology. It provides a solid theoretical background as well as a minimum of 6 months internship in one of our international partner companies in Germany or abroad. 

Besides the classic Master programme there is the possibility of a twin degree. This twin degree programme offers you the opportunity to obtain an accredited European Master degree from OTH Regensburg (Germany) in combination with a Master degree from Malaysia (USM Penang, UTAR Kuala Lumpur or UTAR Kampar) simultaneously. This programme is supported by German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), therefore some students are offered scholarships.
