Multi-Media Enhancement of Teaching Sensors and MEMS

General introduction

Course objective
By taking the course, students will have theoretical and practical skills in the field of sensors and MEMS, with the ability to find, differentiate and apply specific devices for their electronic designs or their research tasks. The course deepens knowledge on working principles, which provides initial skills required for direct sensor/MEMS development.
The primary objective of the course is to provide an overview of sensors and MEMS devices. The different sensor and MEMS structures, the principles of sensing various parameters, and sensing effects are presented for the students, with the overview of application fields. The obtained competences can be used in design and manufacturing situations. Also, the course aids electronic design involving sensor/MEMS devices.
Target students
B.Sc. and M.Sc. students with knowledge of physics, material science, microelectronics.
The course offers knowledge in the field of sensors and micro electromechanical systems (MEMS). The students will know the basic principles, structures and manufacturing technologies of sensors and MEMS. They will understand the related physical effects, measuring methodologies of given parameters, specific device descriptions, and application possibilities with examples according to the different application fields.
Developed by
Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Department of Electronics Technology. The material is based on Sensedu/Memsedu courses.
The following method will be applied for final evaluation:
  • 60% - Knowledge test with a multiple choice questionnaire
  • 40% - Final Project (a review about an applied sensor/mems technology)
