Course Objectives

The multi-disciplinary fields, bio-nanotechnology and Bio-Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems (BioMEMS) in miniature-system level, which combine the majors of life science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, material science and chemistry, are the stars of the biotechnology era.The Goal of this course is to provide senior and graduate students with basic knowledge focusing on spanning frontiers in miniaturization system engineering, which uses integrated circuit fabrication or other nanofabrication technologies for their realization, and molecular diagnosis. In this course, we seek to enhance these multi-disciplinary fields and emphasize the integration of life science and engineering in the miniaturization-scale technology via 1/3 of this course which focuses on studentsí project presentation and discussion.
