The international MSc programme in Organic and Molecular Electronics at TU Dresden features an all-new teaching approach, bringing together physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and materials science.
Organic semiconductor technology is an important source of innovation for science and industry in Germany. Our education is not only about hands-on skills and interdisciplinarity, but also about soft skills like project management and patent law. We offer state-of-the-art study conditions and excellent coaching.
Study the Future: Organic Electronics
Organic electronics (also referred to as plastic electronics) is a novel material class consisting of polymers or other low temperature processable materials. Once combined with innovative manufacturing techniques (e.g. printed electronics) these materials enable the production and development of many valuable and low cost applications. Due to its flexibility, low weight and transparency organic electronics offers a huge market potential in four key application areas: displays; photovoltaics; lighting; and integrated smart systems.
While the technology is novel it is also able to be harnessed in many current applications. The field is evolving at a rapid pace, opening many exciting possibilities and developments. It is predicted that over the course of the next decade the market will have an annual value of several hundred billion euros.
The Master's degree in Organic and Molecular Electronics confirms that you have obtained an excellent interdisciplinary education. However, the sooner you think about your future, the better will you be able to put it into a good use. It is never too early to take a really close look at your skills, interests, and preferences and choose a career path that is right for you. We put together a list of some options that might help you realize your potential and range of choices.
