Question ID: 492619
I want the list of prominent Microelectromechanicalsystems(MEMS)or
NEMS research groups in US universities (in Top 60 Schools). These
groups have to be within or closely associated with Mechanical
Engineering Department.
The group can also be in electronic packaging, thermal analysis of
integrated chips research etc..  (In other words .. Mechanical
engineering anyway related to microelectronics).

Hello zookids-ga,

Please have a look at these links:


and let me know if these are what you're after.

Hello zookids-ga,

I am providing two links -- one from a search I constructed and one
from a pre-existing list -- that identify the key university-based
MEMS and related programs.

The list includes MEMS programs at some of America's most prestigious
research universities -- Carnegie Mellon, UCLA. CalTech, Cornell, Case
Western Reserve, Georgia Tech, and many others.


I beleive these lists will fully meet your needs.  However, please do
not rate this answer until you have everything you need.  Just post a
Request for Clarification if you would like any further assistance.



search strategy -- Google searches on:

microelectricalmechanical OR mems site:edu

microelectricalmechanical OR mems

Hi pafalafa-ga..
Thanks for the answer
Sorry for getting back to you late..
but before rating it...

I would like to know if there is any information on how to use the
keywords in google search..

For your search...u used      site:edu
Similarly I have tried site:org..which returned all sites with .org
I want to know more about those strategies...which will help me to
further narrow my search...
Anyway thanks for the answer....

Glad that the results were useful to you.  Google is a wild and
powerful tool...I'm glad to offer some pointers to putting it to use.

First off, here are links to some useful HELP pages at Google itself:

Advanced Operators and Alternate query types

Pay particular attention to the query terms for:






There's also a good "cheat sheet" (but not quite as comprehensive as
I'd like to see) here:

Google Help : Cheat Sheet

Let's put some of these together for a test run.

For instance, let's try a search like this:

intitle:MEMS OR intitle:microelectromechanical site:edu

This search will find pages where the TITLE of the page includes
either MEMS or MICROELECTROMECHANICAL, and the site is an EDU.

Here is the list of results for that particular search.   


Of course, there are an unending number of variations on a theme, and
with some experimentation, you'll find that you can craft some finely
focused searches with highly targeted results.

Have fun.
