University College of Southeast Norway
University College of Southeast Norway (HSN) will provide the teaching and laboratory work in silicon-based microsystems, thus complementing the first semester teaching and labwork at HWU. It will also provide the smart system specialization in the second semester, where the students choose a specialization in Micro/Nano Biological Systems (MNBS) or in MEMS Design. MNBS combines competence in MEMS technology, in bioengineering and in micro-fluidic systems for use in biomedical applications, whereas MEMS Design goes deeper in the design of physical sensors & actuators, building on the knowledge obtained in the first semester at HWU. The extensive laboratory work in the secondsemester is carried out in the state-of-the-art research laboratory “MSTLab” at HSN, being one of three nodes of the Norwegian Micro- and Nanofabrication Facility, with a national leadership in system integration technologies.
