4 Courses Required

The Micro/Nano Systems and Technology Graduate Certificate offers a plan of study that focuses on the miniaturization technologies that have important roles in materials, mechanical, and biomedical engineering practice, in addition to being the foundation for information technology.

You Will Learn

  • Current and future Micro/Nano systems technologies
  • Fundamental principles for design and analysis of microscales sensors, actuators, circuits and fluidics, including scaling laws, new technologies, and fabrication processes
  • How to design, fabricate and test various Micro/Nano systems, such as electrical, mechanical, and fluidic

This program is being updated to include new courses. We should have more information about the additions by autumn quarter of 2015.

Who Should Apply

Engineers and scientists interested in the art of miniaturization technologies, seeking practical design methodologies and fabrication processes

Earning the Certificate
