Courses

Microfabrication technologies

The student will learn process techniques and applications of modern micro- and nanofabrication, as practiced in a clean room, with a focus on silicon, but also multi-material microsystems and flexible/stretchable systems technologies.

Advanced microfabrication practicals

This TP allows for in-depth training on advanced micro and nanofabrication methods in a clean-room environment for selected applications, gain deeper knowledge in MEMS/NEMS processes, work in a small group together with PhD students/postdocs during 14 weeks touching all aspects of a microprocess.

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.

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.
