Microsystems Graduate Student Seminar Series

Microsystems Graduate Student Seminar Series

The objective of this seminar series, organized by graduate students, is to encourage interactions and collaborations among microsystems researchers. Graduate students and postdocs will give short talks (15-20 min.) focusing on fabrication and characterization (rather than results). The combined range of micromachining expertise in the audience (including also faculty members) will allow constructive suggestions on approaches and methods, and the audience will gain valuable know-how.

Seminars will consist of two presentations followed by discussion. Talks will be informal and will cover all aspects of microsystems: sensors, actuators, microfluidics, integrated systems, etc.

The seminar series is sponsored by the Institute for Systems Research (ISR).  Seminars for Fall 2015 will be held every month, typically on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. in the ISR conference room, 1146 A.V. Williams. Complimentary cookies and beverages will be provided.
