Economical and technical aspects of “Accessing Moon and Mars” is also evaluated. In addition, the challenges of propulsion system design will be introduced to students in theory through lectures and also in practice through a course project (Moon or Mars mission design) that involves the design of a rocket system for a realistic mission.

Microfluidics covers the behavior, precise control and manipulation of fluids in micro scale. It has emerged only in the 1990s and is a multidisciplinary field intersecting engineering, physics, chemistry, micro technology and biotechnology and find wide applications in the development of DNA chips, micro-propulsion, micro-thermal technologies, and lab-on-a-chip technology. Microfluidics course is designed for undergraduate students to give an introduction to microfluidics technology and microscale analysis. Following an introduction to the basic concepts of microfluidic device fabrication and operation, students will research and present on microscale technology relevant to a specific application in biology. In parallel, students will apply this knowledge for the hands-on development of a microscale technology relevant to a topic of their interest.
