Fundamentals of MEMS

BME58100

Credit Hours:

3

Learning Objective:

Key aim is to learn micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and micro-integrated system. Properties of useful materials will be discussed in context to MEMS and BioMEMS. Micro-electronics process modules used in the design and fabrication of MEMS and micro-integrated systems will be presented. Applications of these systems in a variety of sensors and transducers for broad ranges of implantable biomedical applications will be described. Recent advances in wearable biomedical applications of MEMS and bioMEMS will also be discussed in detail.
