Use of MEMS-based technologies and their use in biomedical applications; principles of operation, use in the field of biosensors and bioactuators; use in nanotechnologies.


The teaching of the course is provided by the standard contact form. Completion of the course is an oral exam with written preparation. Teaching of the course can be provided in the form of guided self-study with regular consultations if the number of students is less than 5. Elaboration of a written study on a given professional topic is also required. Completion of two laboratory exercises is a condition for participation in the exam. This must be evidenced by a protocol signed by the student, the leader of the exercise and the guarantor of the course. Protocols will be archived.
