Courses

Mechanical vibrations

The student develops an awareness of vibration problems usually encountered by mechanical engineers. He learns to model and analyse discrete and continuous linear systems, to study their behaviour under free and forced motions and to understand some aspects of nonlinear systems.

Micro/Nanomechanical devices

In this course we will see an overview of the exciting field of Micro and Nanomechanical systems. We will go over the dfferent scaling laws that dominate the critical parameters, how size affects material properties, how these devices are manufactured, designed and later used.
