Integrated Circuit and System Design

The Department for Integrated Circuit and System Design covers the development of design methods for various application areas. A particular focus of our work is on the design, verification, and test of circuits and systems for conventional as well as alternative and post-CMOS computing technologies. Besides that, we have proven to successfully apply the methods developed by us in complementary research areas (learn more about our research on this page). For students, we offer lectures for graduate and undergraduate students and supervise Bachelor as well as Master theses. We believe in research-oriented learning.
