“In my bachelor’s thesis, I developed a demonstrator for energy self-sufficient read-out of an LFA test strip using NFC. I was able to extensively exploit my creativity and productive technical discussions with my later colleagues as well as good technical equipment helped me to successfully complete my thesis.”

“During my bachelor studies ‘Electrical Engineering and Information Technology’ at Ilmenau TU I was able to get to know different laboratories of the university institutes through the internships. I really liked the possibility to visit an affiliated institute of the Ilmenau TU, namely IMMS, through Prof. Sommer. And one semester later I took the opportunity to visit the Erfurt branch office of IMMS as well. This invitation came from Prof. Sommer and Eric Schäfer and also allowed me to tour the production and laboratories of the IMMS industrial partners X-FAB and Melexis. Through this Student Day 2018, which was dedicated to microelectronics, I was able to gain many interesting insights and listen to exciting technical presentations.

I gained the impression that there is a very pleasant atmosphere especially at IMMS and decided to work there as a student assistant during my studies. I was not mistaken about the pleasant working environment and helped in the ‘Industrial Electronics and Measurement’ division of Michael Meister with the construction of a high-temperature transistor test system.

In doing so, I particularly appreciated the good professional care. The decision to do my technical internship in the seventh semester at IMMS was therefore not difficult for me. This enabled me to apply my theoretical knowledge to practical problems. And in my subsequent bachelor’s thesis, I developed a demonstrator for energy self-sufficient read-out of an LFA test strip using NFC. I was able to extensively exploit my creativity and productive technical discussions with my later colleagues as well as good technical equipment, such as an extra RFID measuring station, helped me to successfully complete my thesis.

I was very happy about the opportunity to work part-time as a research assistant at IMMS alongside my following master’s studies. Due to the proximity to the university and especially the flexible working hours, it is possible for me to gain extensive, application-oriented experience and to further develop my skills alongside my studies. Currently I am working in the BMBF KI-EDA project on a modular mixed-signal test system for ASICs. Since I really like the work at IMMS and the collegial environment, I will also write my upcoming Master’s thesis here. The topic will follow on from my previous work at IMMS.“
