Contenu du cours

This course proposes seminars on precision and microfabrication techniques or micro-engineered products among:

  • techniques: water jet cutting, sputtering, photolithography, electro-discharge machining, rapid prototyping, thermoforming, investment cast molding...

  • products: stents, CNT, microneedles, IC components, knee prosthesis...

Some of these seminars are prepared by students, after the visit of an industrial contact specialist in the chosen field. This seminar preparation includes the production of a 20 pages report and a 20-30 minutes slideshow.
