Spring 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021:   ECE 6030, Micro-Electro-Mechanial Systems (MEMS) Design

The field of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) is an interdisciplinary area that includes design and fabrication of sensors and actuators (transducers) that are capable of micron-size mechanical movements. Lectures cover a wide range of topics in design & fabrication. Projects include FE simulation of an inertial, optical, RF, or power MEMS devices as an integral part of this course.

  • Students will develop a holistic view of the field of microsystems
  •  Student will be able to appreciate the role of MEMS sensors and actuators in your daily life. Being able to explain "Why we should care about these devices?"
  • Student will understand the role of the MEMS design and trade-offs in real world.
  • Student will understand the MEMS fabrication process
  •  Student will be able to use multi-physics simulation software to design a MEMS device
  • Student will be able to read, digest, and discuss MEMS articles.
