'It was an excellent training both in terms of contents and presentation. The trainer was exceptional in answering the questions raised but the trainees.'
It was excellent for the beginners who want to study the technology from scratch. I have learnt different technique for MEMS manufacturing which are very helpful.
The course was useful for the overall understanding of hardware design of MEMS and the fabrication techniques of MEMS.
The training is very nice, in fact excellent. Very informative containing a lot of knowledge about the title of training (MEMS). Everything in training including contents, material and lecturer is excellent.
