Science and technology for advancements in miniaturization and integration
Microengineering is the art of creating and manufacturing highly integrated and interconnected components, devices, and systems. It is at the origine for a multitude of products and the necessary technologies for their production.— Prof. Christophe Moser, Section of Microengineering Director
The key characteristic of this field is its multidisciplinary nature, as microsystems involve elements from electronics, robotics, computer science, chemistry, mechanics, and optics. These systems incorporate various materials, ranging from semiconductors to polymers and ceramics.
Microengineering engineers have a vast scientific and technological toolkit. Their skills, at the intersection of technology, innovation, and production, open up diverse fields of activity, from the Internet of Things to robotics, biomedical devices, augmented reality, and horological innovation.
