Course content
1) One of the important issues in microscale fluid systems is surface-tension related phenomenon. Students learn basic physics and mechanics in analyzing surface tension phenomena.

2) Students study the physics of rubber and dielectric elastomer actuators.

3) Students understand basics concepts of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) techniques.
Purpose of class
To learn basic knowledge about mechanics, materials and fluid mechanics in the microscale systems, and to obtain basic skills to apply them to research and development activities.
Goals and objectives
