The number of employees at the institute has continually increased since its founding. With many different disciplines a wide range of competences is represented by the 28 scientific and non-scientific employees currently working at the ISAT.
An average of 20 students from study programs like technical physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering as well as business administration, bioanalytics, computer science and product design are working in the institute as student assistants or trainees within their bachelor- or master thesis. Within several PhD projects the scientific background of the research activities is investigated.
This increase was a result of the growing number of research projects. The interdisciplinary structure of ISAT allows the processing of several projects at the same time by adequate teams of researchers.
