The chair is responsible for the scientific education in the field of material science for students of electrical engineering and microelectronics and focuses on the reliability assessment and prediction for micro and nano systems for graduate students.
Searching a Bachelor, Master Thesis, Research Project or a Student Job?
The Chair offers interesting and challenging student theses as well as assistant jobs.


Reliability as a scientific discipline is concerned with the analysis, assessment and prediction of the lifetime of microelectronic systems (e.g. of interconnects and interfaces of standard and advanced packages, BEOL-layers, MEMS, 3D- architectures, SIP, etc).

The chair is researching on the following fields of competence:
  • Material characterisation
  • Simulation
  • Experimental analytics
The chair cultivates a close collaboration between the Fraunhofer ENAS and Fraunhofer IZM.

Prof. Wunderle is a member of the European Centre for Micro and Nanoreliability (EUCEMAN).
