Procédés de microfabrication
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.
