NSE 201: Fundamentals of Nanosystems Engineering
The objectives of NSE 201 are to develop in microsystems engineering students the knowledge and skills to:
- Communicate what is meant by "nanotechnology" and the scientific basis for its exponential growth in application and predicted impact on the world economy;
- Explain the connections between nanotechnolgy and other disciplines (e.g., biology, chemistry, physics, engineering disciplines);
- Prove a framework for students to think and discuss devices and systems at the atomic/molecular scale;
- Identify the terminology, equipment, techniques, and devices that are used in the design, fabrication, and characterization of nanosystems;
- Discuss the possible societal impacts and consequences of nanotechnology
- Nanosystems Students in Lab Phototlithography
The course is combination of lectures and laboratory activities. Questions about the course may be directed to Dr. Sandra Zivanovic.
