Module Motivation: This module will enable the student to develop an understanding of device fabrication as it relates to optical, microelectronic, sensors, and other miniaturised devices. The major enabling manufacturing technologies will be analysed as will process flow, integration, design aspects, and statistical methods in manufacturing .
1. Design and analyse the processes involved in micro/nano systems manufacture
2. Calculate important features and limitations of micro and nano system design
3. Analyse the performance of a tool-set and relate to productivity and yield
4. Design device manufacturing process flows
5. Conduct the required background research related to the module topic and be able to identify opportunities for further technology development
6. Write well structured reports which are written to the correct level of technical detail to suit the intended reader
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
