Teaching

courses taught

  • MCEN 4010 - Microsystems Integration
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    A microsystem consists of microelectronic, optoelectronic, microwave, microelectromechanical and energy components interconnected. Thermal, electrical, fabrication and assembly issues for microsystems represented by iPhone series will be studied. The packaging and interconnection technologies used to establish the design and manufacturing infrastructure of microsystems will be reviewed. Other optoelectronic, MEMS and batter components for microsystems will also be studied. Same as MCEN 5010.
  • MCEN 4085 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Second part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Includes refinement of prototype, design optimization, fabrication, testing, and evaluation. Students orally present the final design and prepare a written report and operation manual for the product. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSEPL students are not required to complete MCEN 4026.
