Rationale
The subject is used for understanding the concepts and techniques related to design and manufacturing of MEMS components. It will be useful to attain a broad range of the knowledge required to flourish in the rapidly developing field of Nanotechnology.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. To attain a broad range of the knowledge required to flourish in the rapidly developing field of MEMS and Nanotechnology.
2. Facilitate the application of basic physical laws, chemical laws, dynamic behaviour as well as steady state performance to design and synthesize MEMS and Microsystems.
3. Acquaint him / her with applications of mems fabrication techniques and nanotechnology to solve the problems encountered at a macro level.
4. Gain Proficiency in modeling, simulating and evaluating MEMS and Microsystems.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
