New Certificate in Microsystem Technology

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:

1. Required:

  • EEE 5405 Microelectronic Fabrication Technologies

2. Any two of the following:

  • EEE 5354L Semiconductor Device Fabrication Laboratory
  • EEL 5225 Principles of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Transducers
  • EEE 6465 Design of MEMS Transducers
  • EEE 6460 Advanced Microsystem Technology 
  • BME 5580 Microfluidics and BioMEMS

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@ufl.edu)

Arian Rahimi Awarded IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship

Arian Rahimi, current IMG member, has been awarded an IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship for 2016. This fellowship is the highest honor IEEE MTT-S gives to top graduate students recognizing their research activities and promise in the area of microwave engineering. The title of his research proposal is: “Nanotechnology-Inspired Multi-Layer Conductors for High Performance Microwave Passive Components” under supervision of Dr. Y.K. Yoon.

He will be presented with the award during the Student Awards Luncheon at the 2016 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS), San Francisco, CA which will be held May 22-27, 2016. The fellowship includes the financial assistance to the graduate student as well as the travel support to attend the IMS 2016 conference.
