Microsystems Engineers

Microsystems Engineers

Research, design, develop, or test microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices.

Key Competencies * Analytical Thinking * Attention to Detail * Innovation * Integrity * Initiative * Dependability * Cooperation * Persistence * Achievement/Effort * Adaptability/Flexibility

Representative Tasks * Investigate characteristics such as cost, performance, or process capability of potential microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) device designs, using simulation or modeling software. * Refine final microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) design to optimize design for target dimensions, physical tolerances, or processing constraints. * Create schematics and physical layouts of integrated microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) components or packaged assemblies consistent with process, functional, or package constraints.
