The Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group (IMG) is a college-wide multi-departmental education and research program of the College of Engineering at the University of Florida.
IMG has developed a new graduate certificate program in "Microsystem Technology."
Certificate Description: The Microsystem Technology certificate prepares students for the complex, interdisciplinary development of microsystem technologies such as microactuators, microsensors, microfluidic devices, micropower systems, microoptical devices, and other microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
Requirements for Admission: A bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a regionally accredited institution. Students must be registered in a graduate degree program in the College of Engineering and maintain a 3.0 GPA.
Requirements for Completion: Students must complete the following courses (9 credits total) with a grade of B or higher:
2. Any two of the following:
To register for the certificate, apply here: http://admissions.ufl.edu/start.html (scroll down to the "Certificate" section and follow the prompts). After completing the program requirements, you will earn a printed certificate, and a notation will be made on your UF transcript. For more information, email Dr. Arnold (darnold [at] ufl [dot] edu)
Congratulations to Jose Varillas for winning the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) TL1 Fellowship, 2016-2017. His proposed research is titled Enumeration of Circulating Tumor Cells for Monitoring Cancer Treatment Response.
Nicolas Garraud will defend his proposal entitled "Instrumentation for Characterizing the Rotational Dynamics of Magnetic Particles in Suspension" at 9:30 AM on Thursday, August 18th, in NRF 115. Refreshments will be provided.
At this annual IMG Kickoff meeting, we to take stock of where we are at and where we are going as a group. We also provide important updates and reminders. This meeting is mandatory for all IMG members. Pizza will be served at 11:45am, and the meeting will begin promptly at 12:00pm. See you there!
