Norbert Schwesinger studied Electrical Engineering from 1973-1977 and got his PhD in 1983 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the TH Ilmenau. Then he was working as a development engineer, first at Relay Technique Grossbreitenbach and second at Robotron Sömmerda. In 1992 he became director of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories at the Technical University of Ilmenau. Since 2001 he is professor at the Technical University of Munich, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Department of Micro-structured Mechatronic Systems. His research activities are focused on multiple micro-components. Particular attention is paid to the areas of microfluidics, microsensors for mechanical parameters and energy harvesting with micro-structured components.
