Welcome to the South Australian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility
Are you interested in engineering microscopic devices used in the world’s newest technologies? Prepare to be mind-blown!
ANFF-SA’s FREE four-day Microengineering School provides students, researchers, academics and industry with a fascinating introduction to the design and fabrication of microfluidic/electronic, MEMS, optical and sensing chips.
8 x lectures | 7 x Insight sessions | 6 x practical sessions
The FREE THREE DAY PROGRAM is ideal for people interested in engineering microscopic devices used in new world technologies.
Delivered onsite at the University of South Australia's Future Industries Institute, in Mawson Lakes, ANFF-SA's Microengineering School includes presentations and practicals delivered by industry leaders and technical experts who introduce design, fabrication and testing processes including photolithography, design for photolithography, etching, PDMS devices, microelectrodes, characterisation techniques, simulation and electrical integration and 3D printing.
Onsite participants can enjoy hands-on practicals using cutting-edge equipment housed in world-class cleanroom facilities, while lectures and insight sessions provide opportunities to engage with industry leaders for useful career insights.
Together with ANFF-SA's team of highly skilled technicians, ANFF-SA Microengineering School is proud to present a stellar line up of industry experts and special guests:

ANFF-SA is a $15 million investment in cutting-edge advanced manufacturing equipment and technical expertise available to all Australian’s, as part of Australia’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). ANFF-SA offers industry rapid prototyping of new technologies right here in South Australia, and has become a catalyst for international collaboration with global companies, start-ups, and universities.
Open to industry, researchers and academics, ANFF-SA is committed to delivering technical excellence in the design, fabrication and testing of micro-sized devices, but to teaching these techniques to optimise opportunities for micro and nanofabrication manufacturing in Australia.
The facility’s strengths include lab-on-a-chip technology, micro/nanofluidics, advanced sensing, functional coatings, and separation science and it is one of eight nodes of ANFF across Australia, which combined, are filled with over $200 million of investment in tooling, infrastructure and people.
