TFYA51 - Project Course in Physics - Design and Fabrication of Sensor Chip, CDIO

Course description

This course provides an interdisciplinary and integrated education, and brings the students closer to the real engineering world by means of a project work on a practical product – sensor devices - with large innovation and application possibilities. After the course, the students should be enriched in their professional engineering knowledge and skills related to the project work, and to the understanding of the technical importance and strategic value of their work. Furthermore, the course should also provide the students the infrastructure for the project management (linked with the use of LIPS), such that the students will be able to work as a team in a project in an industry-like environment.
A purpose for the course is also for the students to acquire knowledge and abilities within the general area of entrepreneurship, with particular focus on business planning for new ventures. After the course, students should be able to:

  • account for models that describe what it takes for a new venture to have a stable basis for further development and to asess the level of development of ventures using such models
  • account for the information and analyses needed to evaluate a development project from a business point of view and have the ability to collect and analyse relevant information for the purpose

Prerequisites (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)

The knowledge from the following courses is desirable, but not compulsory: Semiconductor technology, Microchip fabrication, Semiconductor physics, Surface physics, Materials physics, Sensor technology, Bio-analytical methods, Contemporary sensor systems.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.
