About AVS > Chapters, Divisions, & Groups > AVS Technical Groups > Manufacturing Science & Technology
The technical structure of AVS is organized as a matrix. Members can participate in one or more Divisions or Technical Groups, each of which is focused around a major topical area. Members may also participate in Chapters and Student Chapters, which are regional organizations that focus on local area needs.

The Manufacturing Science and Technology program complements other AVS sessions by treating practical aspects of manufacturing. Traditionally, MSTG has concentrated on microelectronics (now nanoelectronics). MSTG had focused on the manufacturing aspects of devices, with particular emphasis on process flow design, control and monitoring and on cost effectiveness. Now that the semiconductor industry manufactures nanoelectronic devices with gate lengths below 50 nm, MSTG has expanded to cover nanomanufacturing in general. MSTG's scope now includes manufacturing aspects of MEMS, microfluidics, and microchemical systems. From the start, MSTG has emphasized characterization and metrology. This emphasis is even more important in the new world of nanotechnology.
