Andreas Schütze studied Physics and received his doctorate in Applied Physics from Justus-Liebig-Universität in Gießen in 1994 with a thesis on micro gas sensor systems.
After some years in industry, he joined the University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld, Germany, as professor for Microsystems Technology from 1998 to 2000. Since 2000
he is a full professor for measurement science and technology in the department Systems Engineering at Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany.
His research interests include microsensors and microsystems, especially advanced chemical sensor systems, both for gas and liquid phase,
for applications in air quality, safety, and odour monitoring.
