Micro Systems Engineering Conference


Between October 14 and 16, 2013, about 900 attendees participated in the Microsystem Engineering Conference, taking place at the Aachen Eurogress Conference Center. The event was jointly organized by the RWTH Institute of Materials in Electrical Engineering, headed by Professor Wilfried Mokwa, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, and the Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies, VDE for short.


Today, there is a multitude of products relying on micro electronics, power electronics, and micro systems engineering. Recent years saw a trend from the realization of mere components to the development of intelligent networked systems, such as “smart systems,” which are likely to contribute to the solution of many of the pressing problems of the 21st century. The focus of the conference was on electronic systems in the service of energy supply, energy efficiency,and production automation.

On Monday, Svenja Schulze, the NRW Minister for Innovation, Science and Research, visited the conference and participated in the opening ceremony.
