Welcome to MEMS@MIT

We are a collection of faculty/staff/students working in the broad area of Micro/nano systems and MEMS. This Center was created to serve as a forum for collecting intellectually-synergistic but organizationally diverse groups of researchers at MIT. In addition, we have organized an industrial interaction mechanism to catalyze the transfer of knowledge to the larger MEMS community.

Currently, MEMS @ MIT is comprised of more than 165 faculty/staff/students, working on a broad research agenda and supported by more than $15M/year of research contracts. Additionally, we share a set of world-class design, fabrication, and test facilities, including the more than 6,500 sq.ft. of cleanrooms that are managed by the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL).
