Course Descriptions

Engineering Physics at Rose-Hulman will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn the foundation concepts of physics and make a concentrated study in micro and nano technology. Engineering physicist will be able to apply both scientific and engineering approaches to a wide variety of problems which otherwise is not possible with any traditional engineering or science degree.

EP 508 - Microsensors and Actuators

Introduction to solid state materials and conventional silicon processing. Measurement of signals from resistance- and capacitance-based transducers; sensor characteristics, calibration and reliability. Examples of microsensors: thermal, radiation, mechanical, chemical, optical fibers, and biological. Students must do additional project work on a topic selected by the instructor. Cross-listed with EP 408.
