Mode of Delivery Video and Text Based
A Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors course by Swayam introduces learners to micro - and nano-sensors fabrications. This elective study is based on communications and electrical engineering. It is a Faculty Development Programme (FDP) approved by AICTE. An e-certificate is available with the course. For the certificate, candidates must submit all assignments and write a final proctored examination.
Set at a postgraduate level of study, the Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors certification syllabus integrates online learning through video lectures and practical application of concepts through assignments. Learners will understand the principles of strain-stress in energy dissipation used to design such sensors. Other topics include pressure sensors, lithography, MEM sensor applications, microfabrication, and accelerometers.
The Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors training is curated by IISER Bhopal. Students will interact with the video lectures recorded by Professor Santanu Talukder from the institute. Any student interested in learning more about such sensors can apply for the course. Companies based around semiconductor and processing technology prefer students who have completed the study.

Candidates must register for the end-term test via the website link available only during enrolment time. Students are advised to stay updated with the website announcements. They will be assigned time slots (9 AM-12 PM/2 PM-5 PM) and examination centres. Learners must appear for the test in-person at the said centre and time.
This proctored examination carries a total of 100 marks. For the final Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors certification score, the evaluators will convert the test score to 75%. Additionally, students need to submit four assignments, out of which three will be considered to calculate an average assignment score of 25.
How it helps
A Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors programme has support from various industries involved in semiconductors and technology processing such as Sandisk, ASML, and TSMC. Students will be equipped to analyse, design, and characterise such sensors.
They will also benefit from an e-verifiable certificate with NPTEL and IISER’s logos. It will display the candidate’s picture, full name, and detailed breakup of exam marking. This will verify their newly obtained skills to pursue further employment/education options.
The course is replete with video lectures from professors. If not, students will receive study references for their studies.
A Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors course by Swayam runs for four weeks.
No, students can only learn from the online video lectures that come with the study.
Final Score (100) = Average assignment score (25) + Proctored test (75).
It is recommended that students have a basic understanding of electronics, physics, and mathematics before pursuing the Brief Introduction of Micro – Sensors online course.
