  • Analyze the performance of devices that involve conduction heat transfer such as fins and heat sinks.
  • Find heat transfer coefficients for heat-convection situations from theory and from empirical relations for a variety of engineering devices including pipe flow, external flow, and buoyancy-driven flow.
  • Analyze heat exchanger performance for gas-gas, gas-liquid, and liquid-liquid applications.
  • Analyze radiation heat-transfer devices with black and non-black analysis methods.
  • Find thermal property values in both American and SI units from property tables or other reference materials.
  • Communicate your knowledge in both written and verbal form.

This course is a hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of micro- and nanofabrication processes with emphasis on cleanroom practices. Students will be trained in cleanroom concepts, safety protocols, micro- and nanofabrication tools (e.g., wet bench, mask writing, photolithography, reactive ion etching, etc…), and metrology tools. Topics covered during the semester include:

- Semiconductor Overview
- Thermal Oxidation & Thin Film Deposition
- Lithography
- Etching - dry and wet
- Soft Lithography & Microfluidics
