Applied Mechanics, Electronic/Optoelectronic Packaging, Vibration, and Acoustics
Applied mechanics concerns with the change of physical behavior when a solid object is subjected to forces, displacements, and temperature. Electronic/optoelectronic packaging is a specific discipline that considers an electronic/optoelectronic system with the protection from mechanical damage, temperature, and electrostatic discharge. Vibration and acoustics are the study of mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids.
