Introduction to Microsystems (MEMS) Offered at CNM

Learn what makes your i-phone know which way is up, how a crash bag knows when to detonate, how the inertial sensor in your game controller is made!  What are MEMS? How are they made? What's it like in a clean room?

You will learn about how these micro sensors and actuators are made, designed, where they're used and why you should care!  You will get hands-on in an actual research MEMS cleanroom at the University of New Mexico's Manufacturing Training and Technology Center, use cutting edge Sandia National Labs SUMMiT V design software, and learn from National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education funded Microsystems curriculum.  MEMS payoff Big for technicians!

Technology Students - CNM Applied Technology students can begin to earn a post graduate certificate or a two year Associates in Manufacturing Technology with a concentration in MEMS (Microsystems).  Discover if this new, emerging high tech field is for you!  Go to cnm.edu to find out how to enroll!

High School Students: Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment for HS Students - Take a fun and interesting class which meets the new HS requirement for taking a college class before graduation!  Click here for info: CNM DualCredit or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
