Are you studying engineering or the sciences and interested in designing and fabricating microscopic devices used in the world’s newest technologies? Prepare to be mind-blown! 

ANFF-SA’s FREE four-day Microengineering School -Tuesday July 2 through to Friday July 5 - 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 | 8 x Insight sessions | 8 x practical sessions

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.
