Our Study Programs - smart, micro and green

Smart – stands for robots that act independently, for computers that learn to interpret images or algorithms that become faster and smarter. Simply put, smart stands for computer science.

Micro – is meant literally here. The tiniest technical systems emerge that inconspicuously take on complex tasks in everyday life, medicine and industry. Without even knowing it, you are constantly dealing with microsystems. They make our lives healthier, safer, more comfortable, more versatile and, to say the least, easier.

Green – Freiburg is known worldwide for being the Green City. Since 2015, the Faculty of Engineering has been active from an engineering perspective with its own department for sustainability research. How can renewable energy be generated, fed into the grid and stored? How do we develop materials and systems that are produced and used in an energy- and resource-efficient way and that can adapt optimally to difficult environmental conditions or disasters?

Studying engineering in Freiburg always means that you benefit from all three areas of research, no matter which area you choose. Smart, micro and green technologies are becoming more and more in demand – acquire the necessary competencies to solve the social and technical questions of the future as engineers and computer scientists!

Additional benefits for students at the Faculty of Engineering:

  • With about 1,850 students and 55 professors, we offer an excellent student-teacher ratio for optimal supervisory support
  • A well-balanced combination of theory and practice
  • The majority of our classes are recorded. You can always repeat the material, independent of time and place, for exam preparation, for instance.
  • Earn cash while conducting research  – We are a “well-funded” faculty, which means we apply for a lot of research money for a wide variety of projects every year. Your chance of finding a job as a student aid early on and participating in the latest research.
