This course provides an introduction to experimental statistics, including use of population statistics to characterize experimental results, use of comparison statistics and hypothesis testing to evaluate validity of experiments, and design, application, and analysis of multifactorial experiments
This course gives an introduction to production methods and manufacturing technologies used in microengineering. The focus is given on the understanding of physical phenomena underlying the processes, the relation between materials, manufacturing processes and design, as well as economical aspects.
In this course, students will design, fabricate, and characterize a wireless sensor wearable. Students will design a custom-chosen wearable around a standardized wireless microcotroller platform, including the electronics and packaging, and will characterize and analyze its performance.
Amongst others, following topics will be covered during the course:
- Soft Microsystems and Electronics
- Electroactive polymers
- Printed electronics and microsystems
- Inkjet printing of polymers
- Stretchable electronics
- Mechanical reliability
- Stencil lithography
- Scanning Probe Lithography
