Courses

Introduction to additive manufacturing

The state of the art in the domain of additive production processes (the part is built by material addition without use of a shape tool) will be presented. The main application/benefits/shortcomings of the common additive processes as well as technological and economical issues will be discussed.

Microfabrication technologies

The student will learn the fundamental aspects of modern micro and nanofabrication as they are being used in modern clean room facilities. The course focuses mainly on silicon based technologies but introduces also other materials of interest for micro and nanosystems.

Manufacturing DLLs (automne)

In groups of 4 students and accompanied by an assistant, each student will learn basic procedures and manipulations, as practiced in a clean room. For each group, the TP consists of 3 sessions of 4 hours each.

Manufacturing DLLs (printemps)

In groups of 4 students and accompanied by an assistant, each student will learn basic procedures and manipulations, as practiced in a clean room. For each group, the TP consists of 3 sessions of 4 hours each.

Advanced additive manufacturing technologies

Advanced 3D forming techniques for high throughput and high resolution (nanometric) for large scale production. Digital manufacturing of functional layers, microsystems and smart systems.

MEMS practicals I

Objective of this practical is to apply in specific experimental settings the knowledge acquired in various MEMS related class

MEMS practicals II

Objective of this practical is to apply in specific experimental settings the knowledge acquired in various MEMS related class

Nanotechnology

This course gives the basics for understanding nanotechnology from an engineer's perspective: physical background, materials aspects and scaling laws, fabrication and imaging of nanoscale devices.

Soft Microsystems Processing and Devices

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

MOOC: Micro and Nanofabrication (MEMS)

Micro- and nanofabrication can be taught to students and professionals by textbooks and ex-cathedra lectures, but the real learning comes from seeing the manufacturing steps as they happen. This MOOC will not only explain the basics of microfabrication but also show the practice through videos.

Advanced topics in micro- and nanomanufacturing: top-down meets bottom-up

This course introduces advanced fabrication methods enabling the manufacturing of novel NEMS/MEMS. Both top-down (stenciling, scanning probes, additive techniques) and bottom-up approaches (self-assembly) are presented.
