KEmikro is a teaching and development field at RWTH Aachen University. Our objective is to teach the existing knowledge on design and development of micro systems and to extend it with our reseaarch activities. A list of our publications is found here.
We offer to support industrial enterprises developing micro components such as micro switches, micro valves, micro pumps, sensors for pressure and flow, and micro components for ultrasound applications. We want to develop preferably simple and low-cost solutions which require affordable investments only. Therefore, we often employ ultrasonic fabrication for divices from thermoplastic polymers.
Besides lectures and exercises, students are offered the opportunity to perform their bachelor, master, and Ph.D. thesis in an interesting and promising field.
