Selected topics are gene regulation, protein expression and physiological metabolism in cellular reactions, structural aspects to gain insight into drug design and assay development for pharmaceutical applications. The module includes the structural and functional properties of DNA, proteins and interactions between molecules. An emphasis on gene regulation will lead to the understanding of metabolic processes and proteomics (from genomics to proteomics). Also, the pathogenesis of diseases related to the malfunction of genes and proteins will be addressed – and mayor developments in recent biomedicine research.

Lecturers: Prof Dr.rer.nat.habil. Gerd Gemmecker & Prof. Dr. Michael Rossbach / Modular Credits: 6 / Semester: 2

CM5272b Cell Biology

More advanced applications in biochemistry are the main objectives of this module. The course will cover the organization of living cells with respect to using cells for induced bioreactions and applications in biotechnology. The communication and reaction of cells to extra- and intracellular signals will be discussed. Understanding the organization of cells, from a single to a multi-cellular organism, gives insight into one of the most complex and fascinating networks alive. This module focuses on the compartmentalization of cellular organisms, the complex reactions in genetics and protein biochemistry, the highly organized metabolic reactions and the pathology occurring when parts of this network fail. Within the cell are transport processes, feedback loops, sensing interfaces, membrane compartments and gradients over membranes. Altogether they allow a cell not only to grow, divide and communicate with its environment, but also to adapt to changes in the environment and to evolve. If such complex procsses malfunction, oncogene may cope for tumor development and thus immunological reactions within an organism start to fight back. Today, scientists know that the crosstalk between the immune, hormone and nervous system plays an important role for tissue homoeostasis. Pharmaceutical research focuses on such reactions to develop innovative drugs for cancer therapy or to fight diseases like AIDS or neurodegenerative diseases (Morbus Alzheimer, Morbus Parkinson etc.). This research could be addressed as “from bench to screening” or “from bench to drugs”. This module will also cover the biological features of adult and embryonic stem cells since they provide a great means to develop disease models and individualized drugs.

Lecturers: Prof. Dr. Michael Rossbach / Modular Credits: 6 / Semester: 2

CM5272c Bioprocessing/Bioengineering

In this module, biotechnological and process engineering principles will be introduced with a specific emphasis on industrial and pharmaceutical applications. The modifications of organisms like bacteria, yeast, insect or human cells provide the possibility to produce large amounts of recombinant proteins for biological or medical applications. Since enzymes are widely used in industrial and medical applications, it is crucial to understand enzyme kinetics and bioprocessing techniques for the production of such proteins. The latest techniques for the modification of organisms (modifications on the genomic/transcriptional or proteomic/translational level) will be introduced as well as scale-up and scale-out technologies, drug handling, analysis and (cryo-) conservation. Bioreactor technology provides the tools required for production processes under GLP conditions and assures a high reproducibility and quality of a product. Modern (bio-) analytical techniques will be discussed since they are important to validate samples and to characterize target molecules. Among these techniques are Mass Spectroscopy, NMR, X-ray crystallography, Spectroscopic and Fluorescent assays.

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT DESIGN 

“This programme is designed to equip us with solid theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience to be a successful IC Design Engineer in this competitive semiconductor industry.”
Douglas Chin Yi Ren (Graduate, MSc in Integrated Circuit Design)
Analog IC Design Engineer, STMicroelectronics

Changes in integrated circuits technology have had a huge impact on our day to day life. Incredible technological advances over the last 50 years enable us to integrate billions of transistors on a single integrated circuit. At the same time the cost of a single transistor has decreased exponentially. The result is that every day new attractive applications for the use of ICs open up, enabling the semiconductor industry to grow much faster than the overall economy. However, the semiconductor industry’s capability to make intelligent use of all these transistors in designing successful products has not kept pace with the manufacturing capabilities. The electronics and semiconductor industries are therefore constantly looking for well-educated integrated circuit design engineers.

The international Master of Science in Integrated Circuit Design which is jointly offered by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) aims to educate the next generation of engineers and entrepreneurial leaders for the fast moving semiconductor industry. The programme contents ranges from analog, digital and mixed-circuit design over architectural concepts for integrated circuits to design methodology and automation. Product manufacturing and testing are also addressed. Integrated circuit design is also placed in a broader context, e.g. by teaching fundamental concepts of signal processing which are at the core of today’s communications circuits. Students will also be taught essential non-technical topics such as product marketing, international management, patent law and aspects of culture and globalization. This will be mainly done by highly qualified freelancers from our industry partners. Upon the successful completion of the programme, the student will be awarded a joint Masters degree from NTU and TUM.
