Basics of electrical engineering and material science

learning outcome

Students are able to design and analyze printed circuit boards, hybrid circuits and electronic assemblies and can evaluate these regarding their applicability and performance.

They are able to apply their systematic knowledge in electronics technology (e.g. in complex student projects or lab work)


The subject covers basic knowledge regarding product cycle and properties of microelectronic assemblies. It contains the fundamentals of organic circuit boards (PCB), their structuring processes as well as assembly and mounting technologies to achieve a functional electronic system. In addition to these standard processes some alternative technologies will be introduced.

  1. Design process and product cycle (from idea to the product)
  2. Thermal management in microelectronics
  3. Board technologies
    • Overview of available technologies
    • Materials and their properties
    • Additive and subtractive structuring processes
    • Practical work: design of a PCB
  4. Microelectronic components
  5. Mounting and assembly technologies (soldering, bonding, gluing, dispensing etc.)
  6. Design and layout aspects of PCBs (electrical and thermal design)
  7. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
  8. Basics of RF design
  9. Hybrid circuit technologies
    • Thick- and Thinfilm technology
    • LTCC technology
  10. Basics of component packaging
media of instruction
  • Powerpoint slides (also available as script)
  • Videos
  • Writings on the board
  • Exercises (presented by both students and lecturer)
