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

  • Credit Hours: 3R-3L-4C
  • Term Available: S
  • Graduate Studies Eligible: No
  • Prerequisites: EP 410 or Junior or Senior standing and consent of instructor
  • Corequisites: None

Microelectromechanical (MEMS) systems composed of microsensors, microactuators, and electronics integrated onto a common substrate. Design, fabrication, and operation principles. Examples of microsensors covered in the course include: thermal, radiation, mechanical, chemical, and biological. Laboratory is a team design project in which the students fabricate sensing devices such as pressure or thermal sensors and then characterize their behavior. Cross-listed with EP 408.
