Career as a Microsystem Engineer


Microsystem Engineers research, design, develop, or test microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices. A Microelectromechanical device is known as a MEMS device. This is what microsystems engineers work with. They may be involved in producing design plans for MEMS systems. Microsystems engineers use computer design software to produce things such as schematics of the products they're involved with designing. They assess data about their design plans and other products to determine how effective the products are and what the production cost is. They analyze relevant data, identify ways to improve products and address any issues with the design or production process.

The duties of Microsystem Engineers includes to create schematics and physical layouts of integrated microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) components or packaged assemblies consistent with process, functional, or package constraints and to investigate characteristics such as cost, performance, or process capability of potential microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) device designs, using simulation or modeling software. They also create or maintain formal engineering documents, such as schematics, bills of materials, components or materials specifications, or packaging requirements and conduct analyses addressing issues such as failure, reliability, or yield improvement. They also plan or schedule engineering research or development projects involving microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology.

Work Environment

Microsystem Engineers work collaboratively with other professionals involved in MEMS device design and production. As part of their work they must document their research and report their findings. They may also be involved with product packaging design. They also need to be experienced with using computer design software programs to produce designs and schematics. Teamwork skills are important in order to work effectively with others involved with the design and production of MEMS devices.

Entry Level Education

Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Physics or in related fields.
