Smart Sensor Systems - Advanced Engineering Course
(April 16-20, 2018, Delft, The Netherlands)
The Smart Sensor Systems Course is a post-graduate engineering course. The lectures are given by top experts from academia and industry, thus ensuring a good mix between recent developments and established practice. The prerequisite for the course is a basic knowledge of electrical circuits and systems. The course will be taught in English. After the course, each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance.
This course addresses the design and development of smart sensor systems. After a general overview, various key aspects of sensor systems are discussed: measurement and calibration techniques, the design of precision sensor interfaces, analog-todigital conversion techniques, microfabrication techniques, and sensing principles for the measurement of magnetic fields, temperature, capacitance, acceleration and rotation. The state-of-the-art smart sensor systems covered by the course include smart magnetic-field sensors, smart temperature sensors, multi-electrode capacitive sensors, implantable smart sensors, DNA microarrays, smart inertial sensors, smart acoustic sensors and CMOS image sensors. A systematic approach towards the design of smart sensor systems is presented. The lectures are augmented by an introduction to multi-domain modelling and simulation, and hands-on experiments. This course is a part of the PhD Education Program approved by the Graduate School of TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands. PhD students can be granted 3 ECTS credits after evaluation based upon a paper on a theme to be agreed with the course directors.
Until March 23: € 1,800.-
After March 23: € 2,000.-
PhD students: € 900.-
Please visit www.mead.ch for on-line registration. Included in the fee are lecture notes, the books “Smart Sensor Systems” and “Smart Sensor Systems – Emerging Technologies and Applications”, daily lunches, coffee breaks and a course dinner organized for all attendees and instructors of the course.
The course will be held at Delft University of Technology, in the EWI building (the tallest building located in the University area).
