Micro- and nano-technology is used to create devices that can probe, measure, and manipulate molecules and cells. From nanofluidic systems that use electrical double-layers for protein separation to electrically patterned arrays of cells, topics covered in EECS courses directly impact the study of bioscience. Additionally, the design principles used in EECS courses, such as equivalent circuits, are essential for designing devices as diverse as microfluidic mixers, microscale bioreactors, and fluorescent biosensors. Finally, we offer courses that teach the fabrication of these devices.
