Bio

Dr. Martin K. Anselm (Director of the Center for Electronics Manufacturing, RIT).  Dr. Anselm holds an undergraduate degree in Physics, a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering.  Dr. Anselm's Industrial experience includes twelve years of electronics failure analysis and root cause analysis. He also managed the Universal Instruments AREA Consortium which conducted research in assembly materials, process and reliability of electronic packaging. Dr. Anselm served on the Board of Directors for the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) from 2013-2019.

Dr. Anselm's Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Binghamton University dissertation was titled, "(Cu,Ni)6Sn5 Intermetallic Formation Kinetics on Electroless Nickel (Ni) When Varying Copper (Cu) Concentration and Reflow Process.”  His current second level electronics packaging research foci include; 1. Advanced Manufacturing for electronic miniaturization, 2. Low Temperature lead-free solder alloy process optimization and reliability, 3. Solder joint microstructural evolution in thermomechanical fatigue.  Dr. Anselm also supports Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) packaging and reliability studies funded through NYS and the DOD.  Beyond this academic research, Dr. Anselm has also developed training courses for unemployed and under-employed veterans in the NYS Finger Lakes district.  He has secured funding from New York’s Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) to provide veterans with training and certifications in electronics manufacturing.  This work has resulted in gainful employment for many veterans in the local electronics manufacturing industry.

Currently Teaching

MFET-655
3 Credits
This course provides a thorough understanding of the technology, components, equipment, materials and manufacturing process for through hole technology and surface mount technology electronics manufacturing. Students will develop a strong foundation needed for advanced work in surface mount technology (SMT). The activities will provide the students an orientation and familiarization of the manufacturing equipment and process parameters for printed circuit board assembly. Graduate students will explore surface defects and remediation and will prepare a detailed annotated bibliography related to specific aspects of electronics manufacturing. Topics in Design for Manufacturing are also considered for high volume vs. low volume manufacturing. Students may only receive credit for this course or MFET-545, not both.
ENGT-510
0 Credits
This faculty directed undergraduate research experience involves student(s) in a research project. Under the guidance of CET faculty and using one or a variety of methods, students will collect data and contribute to problem solving within a research environment. As an undergraduate research experience, emphasis is on the process of scientific research, including problem definition, formulating a research plan, data collection/analysis and interpretation based on existing research. Department permission is required.
MFET-798
0 Credits
Continuation of Capstone
MFET-788
3 Credits
Students will rigorously develop their thesis research ideas, conduct literature reviews, identify and plan methodologies, prepare schedules, and gain a clear understanding of the expectations of the faculty and the discipline. Each student will be required to prepare a committee approved thesis research proposal and may begin work on their thesis.
MFET-545
3 Credits
This course provides a thorough understanding of the technology, components, equipment, materials and manufacturing process for through hole technology and surface mount technology electronics manufacturing. Students will develop a strong foundation needed for advanced work in surface mount technology (SMT). Topics in Design for Manufacturing are also considered for high volume vs. low volume manufacturing. Students may only receive credit for this course or MFET-655, not both.
ENGT-518
1 - 4 Credits
Students will travel to a foreign country and learn about various aspects of engineering within the context of local customs, culture, and economy. Students will attend presentations and explore facilities that represent engineering disciplines in global locations. Details of the specific experience will vary and will be announced by the specific department. Students may receive credit only once per topic title.
MFET-656
3 Credits
The advanced course in semiconductor packaging will provide a thorough coverage of the materials, processes, failure, and reliability of chip level packaging. Specific topics include single-chip, multi-chip, wafer level and 3D stacked packaging, photonic integrated chip (PIC), smaller passives and embedded passive component technology, advanced substrates and microvia technology, solder technologies, metallurgy and joint formation, thermal management, thermal and mechanical behavior of packaging, failure analysis, and reliability testing. Course includes projects and literature review in topics of semiconductor packaging. This course is cross listed with MFET-556 students may receive credit for MFET-556 or MFET-656, not both.
MFET-797
3 Credits
This course provides the MMSI graduate students an opportunity to complete their degree requirements by addressing a practical real-world challenge using the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their studies. This course is not only the culmination of a student's course work but also an indicator of the student's ability to use diverse knowledge to provide a tangible solution to a problem. The capstone project topic can be in the areas of product development, manufacturing automation, management system, quality management or electronics packaging. The course requires a comprehensive project report and a final presentation.
MFET-790
3 Credits
The MMSI thesis is based on thorough literature review and experimental substantiation of a problem, by the candidate, in an appropriate topic. A written proposal has to be defended and authorized by the faculty adviser/committee. The proposal defense is followed by experimental work, a formal written thesis, and oral presentation of findings. The candidate should have completed the requisite courses for the program before enrolling for the thesis.
MFET-556
3 Credits
The advanced course in semiconductor packaging will provide a thorough coverage of the materials, processes, failure, and reliability of chip level packaging. Specific topics include single-chip, multi-chip, wafer level and 3D stacked packaging, photonic integrated chip (PIC), smaller passives and embedded passive component technology, advanced substrates and microvia technology, solder technologies, metallurgy and joint formation, thermal management, thermal and mechanical behavior of packaging, failure analysis, and reliability testing. This course is cross listed with MFET-656 students may receive credit for MFET-556 or MFET-656, not both.
MFET-600
0 Credits
This course provides students that are new to the MMSI program an opportunity to develop an understanding of the department’s research activities. The students will become more knowledgeable about the Manufacturing & Mechanical Systems Integration program, career options, the capstone and thesis project process (finding an advisor, required documentation and policies regarding completing a project on co-op) and department policies and procedures related to successful completion of the MMSI program.
