News Flash: Roger Grace's Blog on MEMS Commercialization 2007 - "The future is very bright for MEMS, especially in the "killer application" sector. Whereas in the past only a handful of these high-volume applications existed, I expect to see many more opportunities for MEMS in many other areas, including biomedical applications." This has been found to be true recently with Yole's 2011 analysis of the MEMS industry.
The Southwest Center for Microsystems Education identifies microsystems technician competencies, creates and disseminates educational materials and models, and provides professional development activities and cultivates our community of practice to develop a skilled microsystems workforce ready for research and development and industry manufacturing environments. By supporting the growth and enrichment of technician education programs, the SCME will improve the competitive position of established and emerging economic clusters.
