The TZM (Transfer Center for Microelectronics) was established in 1991 by professors at the University of Applied Sciences in Esslingen. Since then, it has made a name for itself as a reliable engineering partner.

Innovative solutions are developed within a team of engineers and specialists from different fields. We handle complete projects or offer customer support for on-site development projects.

Our focus on know-how and regular exchange with research institutions ensures a crucial edge in terms of technological capacity and makes the TZM one of the most successful technology transfer enterprises within the Steinbeis Network.

We offer cross-industry engineering services for:

  • Electronics development
  • Software development
  • Measurement and testing technology
