Module overview

This module teaches the basics of the behaviour of fluids in microsystems, specifically focussing on the interaction of fundamental physical mechanisms and the design of microfluidic devices. It also reviews and analyses the state of the art in applied microfluidics such as Laboratory-on-a-Chip technology.

The module uses COMSOL Multiphysics, a specialist finite element analysis tool, to model a fluidic sensor.
