Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Describe and apply the fundamental working principle of bio-molecule sensing/sensors, and applying this knowledge to design solutions to probe biomedical and biology systems.
- Demonstrate the capability to use point fabrication procedures in practical process integration.
- Demonstrate a detailed understanding of the fundamental principles of nanotechnology and their application to biomedical engineering.
- Analyse the fabrication of microfluidic devices, surface functionalization and the limitations of surface micromachining.
- Evaluate and employ electrical measurements for MEMS mechanical structure characterization, understanding possible problems encountered in living systems.
- Critique the merits of lab-on-chip devices based on MEMS and the current challenges of bio-sensing, using this insight to apply electrical and mechanical system engineering techniques to solve biomedical problems.
