NANO AND MICRO-SCALE MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING

EMS5NME

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In EMS5NME, you will learn principles of advanced nano and micro-scale manufacturing engineering and how to apply the most relevant processes in use today to create novel microstructures, devices, and systems. You will systematically explore the advantages and limitations of advanced nano and micro fabrication processes and learn how to apply them. You will gain an appreciation for the needs of the semiconductor, sensors, electronics packaging, NEMS/MEMS - microfluidics, and micro optics industries. Finally, you will consider requirements for nano/micromanufacturing enterprises with a particular emphasis on cost, performance, reliability, ease of manufacture, sustainability, and safety.
