ACI-51416 Assignment in Microfluidics, 1-5 cr
There are no course implementations during 2011-2012, but if you are interested in performing a special assignment on microfluidics, be in contact with the teacher.
Suitable for postgraduate studies
Will not be lectured year 2011-2012
|Study type||P1||P2||P3||P4||Summer||Implementations||Lecture times and places|
A completed assignment. The assignment can be a practical work on microfluidics, modeling and simulation work or literature survey.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
- the course is based on tutoring, which takes place partly in face-to-face discussions and partly in Moodle
This course is extension of Microfluidics course (ACI-51406). It is intended for students, who want to work independently on a problem. The problem can have different nature: such as a simulation, practical work in the laboratory or literature research of a topic. After the course, the student can analyse, design or implement microfludic structures.
|Content||Core content||Complementary knowledge||Specialist knowledge|
|1.||research skills> depending on the problem - defining a problem, - writing, - presenting, - searching and evaluating information|
|2.||for simulation problems> - fluid mechanics theory - deeper understanding of modeling and simulation strategies related with microfluidics as well as modelling tools (e.g. Comsol Multiphysics and MATLAB)||- background information for given application - varies (e.g. biotechnology, material science, process automation)|
|3.||practical work> - fabrication and testing of microfluidic devices in practice - deeper understanding of practical issues related to microfluidics||- background information for given application - varies (e.g. biotechnology, material science, process automation)|
|4.||literature search> - further development of research skills - deeper understanding of researched microfluidic subject||- background information for given application - varies (e.g. biotechnology, material science, process automation)|
Evaluation criteria for the course
- amount of credits depends on the size of the problem as well as its solution in a timely manner
Numerical evaluation scale (1-5) will be used on the course
