Sensor Technology


Sensor Technology

When machines can see, hear and feel

In the Sensor Technology specialization, you will learn how sensors are used so that machines can also see, hear or feel. Sensors are ubiquitous today and it's hard to imagine our lives without them: Sensor systems can be found in airbags, parking aids, smartphones, game consoles and medical technology devices.

Our senses allow us to interact with the environment and other people. A machine with sensors can pick up influences from the environment, convert them into electrical signals and process the data.

A graduate reports

Christian Ruf: The diversity of the field of study played a fundamental role in my decision to pursue a degree. I was looking for something that would give students a basic knowledge across disciplines. This makes it possible to apply for many different jobs after graduation, and it makes it possible to be employed in positions where the goal is to combine different disciplines. I chose Sensor Technology because it was exactly what I was looking for. And during my internship semester at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia, I focused on microfluidics. That turned out to be a door opener for the bachelor thesis and the first job.
