Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulf Schlichtmann
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Schlichtmann (b. 1964) explores methodologies and automation to aid the design of complex (digital and analog) electronic circuits and systems. These can often have billions of components and need to be designed using sophisticated mathematics-based optimization and analysis processes.
Prof. Schlichtmann studied electrical engineering at TUM and did his doctorate on computer-aided design processes. He completed a postgraduate industrial engineering qualification at the same time. After that, he worked for Siemens AG and Infineon Technologies AG in a number of technical and managerial positions for just under 10 years. One of his roles was senior manager overseeing the global development of libraries. In 2003, Prof. Schlichtmann accepted an offer from TUM. Outside of his research activities, he also organizes international English language courses. In his role as liaison lecturer of the Foundation of German Business (SDW), he oversees a large group of scholarship holders.
