Microtechnology and Nanotechnology


John Wen, MCSME


Xian Wang, MCSME


The committee’s principal mandate is to represent CSME members active within the sector of microtechnology and nanotechnology. The committee aims to promote the advancement of micro- and nano-technologies, facilitated by theoretical and experimental research. A major duty is to organize a Symposium on Microtechnology and Nanotechnology (SMN) at the annual CSME Congress; other responsibilities include the promotion of TC opportunities within the microtechnology and nanotechnology community, participation in the SMN by submitting or reviewing papers, and communicating with session participants.
