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 process techniques and applications of modern micro- and nanofabrication technologies, as practiced in a standard clean room, with focus on silicon mainstream and microsystems technologies.

Microfabrication practicals

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the practical aspects of some basic micro-fabrication techniques.

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

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.
