Course Description:
This course introduces the fundamentals of Micro Electromechanical systems (MEMS) and its applications in a wide range of devices and systems, as well as the design and simulation of these systems. MEMS is an enabling technology which has been penetrated into and begun to change the way major discipline do things, including biotechnology, storage technology, instrumentation, optical communications, telecommunications, MEMS device packaging, etc. The aim of the course is to give the students hands on experience about the learning field of MEMs. This is a blended learning course meaning that the student’s learning will be largely self-driven in the time outside the scheduled face-to-face time. A broad introduction to the field of MEMs is provided and students will learn about diversity and significance of the field. A focus will be fabrication and microfluidics. By the end the students will understand, fabricate and compute their own MEMs system device for analysis.
