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!
STEM Teachers - learn about MEMS - Jazz the students into learning more about science, technology and math!
See the detailed description of the Intro to MEMS Hybrid Course and the Theory and Lab Syllabi.
If you've never taken an online course - no worries, Fabian will show your the ropes and there is plenty of training available.
