Programme Highlights

To civil engineers, the Nano-R&D & Manufacturing  (Nano-R&D&M) facilities are complex processes involving many considerations not typically encountered in designing traditional civil engineering facilities. This seminar will begin with the introduction of nanotechnology (NT) and its impact on semiconductor facility design and construction following by the discussion of the issues resulted from the use of high performance tools and ultra-pure utilities. Meanwhile, along an interdisciplinary effort for the design/build of the semiconductor facilities, the civil engineers’ role will be pointed out.
