Symbolic picture for the article. The link opens the image in a large view.

As part of the collaboration between FAU and Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan, the IRTG offers four new interdisciplinary graduate level lectures on device development and advanced characterization methods in the summer semester 2022. Those week-long lectures (5 ECTS) will be given by a joint FAU-NITech PI team. This FAU-NITech Lecture Series will provide doctoral researchers and master students with an excellent overview on characterization and analysis techniques, state-of-the-art simulation methods, and device development.

Please register by writing an e-mail to IRTG Coordinator Julia Berger or by joining the courses in StudOn. Each module is compatible with the elective module especially in the master courses EEI, ET, MWS, NT, MAP, WING, MB, ME, CE, AOT (TechFak) and Chemistry (NatFak).
