Electronic Engineering

History and physical processes on the stylized floor plan of an electronic board.

Faster, better, smaller – electronic engineering has got its own special standards. Electronic components have shrunk to nearly microscopic size during the past 100 years but have grown more powerful than ever before. And they are in use in nearly all areas of life – from the simple light switch to the smartphone, from the car to the power station. In our new permanent exhibition we will show from 2019 on how electronic technologies developed and what impact they had on society. On the stylized floor plan of an electronic board visitors are guided through history of electronic engineering as well as being explained the physical processes behind it. About 500 objects and models and 20 media-stations and demonstrations make perceptible, how the electronic engineering has become an essential part of our life.
