Graduate Courses
    1. ME573 Introduction to Micro/Nano electromechanical Systems
    2. ME652 Design and Fabrication of Micro and Nanoelectromechanical Systems
  • ME573 Introduction to Micro/Nano electromechanical Systems
Course description: Introduction to microsystem design, modeling and fabrication. Course topics include material properties of Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), microfabrication technologies, structural behavior, sensing and actuation principles and methods. Emphasis on microsystems design, modeling and simulation including lumped element modeling and finite element analysis. The emerging nano materials, processes and devices will be also discussed.  Student teams design microsystems (sensors, actuators, and sensing/control systems) of a variety of types, (optical MEMS, bioMEMS, inertial sensors, etc.) to meet a set of performance specifications using a realistic microfabrication process.
Course Syllabus
  • ME625 Design and Fabrication of Micro and Nanoelectromechanical Systems
Course description: This course covers advanced topics in the design, modeling and fabrication of nano and micro electromechanical systems. The materials will be broad and multidisciplinary including: review of nano and microelectromechanic systems, design principles and methodologies, dimensional analysis and scaling, thermal, transport, fluids, microelectronics, feedback control, noises and electromagnetism at the micro and nanoscales; the modeling of a variety of new MEMS/NEMS devices; and alternative approaches to the continuum mechanics theory. The goal will be achieved through a combination of lectures, case studies, individual homework assignments, and design projects carried out in teams.
