Applications are invited for 'Micromanufacturing'

IIT Kanpur, invites applications for its short term programme 'Micromanufacturing and its Applications' for the academic year 2014. Students can apply online by logging on to the official website of IITK.


Nowadays, meso (1-10 mm) and micro (1-1000 μm) manufacturing are emerging as an important technology specially in the areas where miniaturisation yields economic and technical benefits, namely, aerospace, automotive, optical, biomedical and similar other areas. With the advent of numerical control (NC) in machine tools, accuracy, uniformity and repeatability of the machined parts have improved and manufacturing has gained the flexibility. With time, the miniaturisation of the machines and devices is leading to the demand of parts with dimensions of the order of a few micrometers to a few hundred micrometers. Scientists and researchers are engaged in developing even the nano featured products such as NEMS (Nano Electro Mechanical System). It is quite safe to say that there is a need to have the manufacturing processes, which are capable of dealing with atomic and molecular dimensions. Hence, such processes come under the category of μ-manufacturing.
