CH EN 5960 - 007 Special Topics


Sensors & Transducers - The class introduces the principles of operation of both traditional sensors and the modern solid state micro sensors which are found in the majority of consumer, biomedical, automotive, aerospace, energy, and robotics products. The class joins practical examples and experimentation with a first introduction to the underlying principles of solid state device physics and electronic properties of materials. Helping to leverage the growth in the semiconductor business due to the Chips act, students will leave this class with sufficient practical knowledge to pursue advanced classes in semiconductor devices, micro and nanofabrication, and to apply real sensors to robotics, energy, transportation, consumer, and biomedical devices. To register for the lecture and lab, register for the lab in ECE 3960-003, and you will automatically also be registered for the lecture in ECE 3960-002
