About the Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS):
  Micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) is the integration of micro mechanical
elements, sensors, actuators, and electronic devices, integrated on a common silicon
substrate through microfabrication technology. There are numerous possible applications
for MEMS and Smart Systems. Current MEMS devices include accelerometer for airbag
sensors, inject printer heads, projection display chips, optical switches, biosensors and
many other products. Among many technologies that seem to have vast potential for
application, MEMS seems highly promising. Coupled with the smart materials and
systems technology, MEMS find applications from aerospace to automobile engineering,
from environmental monitoring to biomedical health sciences. The specific areas include
development of new sensor and actuator materials, processing and characterization of
smart materials, constitutive modeling, newer methods of analysis, device design and
fabrication, electronics and packaging, smart structural design for optimum power and
performance, and development of control algorithms. Mechanical engineers are needed
for the design of MEMS, the analysis of mechanical system, the design of testing
apparatus, the implementation of analytical tools, and the packaging process scaling can
be illustrated in the main areas of mechanical engineering of solid mechanics, fluid
mechanics, dynamics , tribology and heat transfer. Microfludics becoming the popular
topic in MEMS for the great potential in bioanalytical and bioprocessing for clinical,
laboratory and pharmaceutical Microsystems.

About the Tutorial:
The tutorial is organized to make the participants aware of the various issues in MEMS
and encourage them to consider this field as their career. This tutorial helps to develop
the foundation in materials, characterization, MEMS fabrication, integration. This tutorial
provides Mechanical , Electronic engineers and scientists with an in-depth knowledge in
MEMS. The following topics covered in the tutorial.
1. Overview of Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)
2. Microfabrication Technologies : Surface and Bulk Micromachining: Related processes
and device integration
3. Design Modeling and Simulation of MEMS and Interfacing circuits
4. Simulation demos.
