2 nd Shorterm course on 
              Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) &

6th to 10 th July 2015

Indian Institute of Technology Indore   

Objective of the Course

                     Micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) present a unique platform where both electrical and mechanical components are fabricated on a single wafer. There have been many developments in the last few decades towards the design, fabrication and commercialization of MEMS and NEMS based sensors. Some of the fastest growing areas which utilize different MEMS sensors and actuators are entertainment industries, consumer electronics, medical, defense, space industries, etc. The electro-mechanical device basically includes micro actuators, micro sensors, micro transducers, micro-switches etc, these micro device have occupied their own positions for different applications ranging from bio medical, aerospace, defense, energy and day to day life. Mechatronics, MEMS and micro fabrication are interlinked areas, focusing towards the development of micro devices for the benefit of mankind. 


Target Participants       

                               Keeping the interest of serious researchers, faculties, and employees of different institutions, R&D labs and companies across the country, we have designed a unique program on Mechatronics, MEMS and  which cover fundamentals of design, fabrication, and packaging of a complete MEMS device.
