MEMS technology is now where integrated circuit technology was about 30 years ago. It is clearly going to be pervasively important. Both commercial volume and patents on MEMS are growing at rates exceeding 20% annually. The teaching of MEMS technology, now in its early stages, must keep pace. Most universities with an engineering program will have to teach MEMS technology starting within the next decade. This paper summarizes the state of the MEMS instruction regarding available texts and other materials, and especially current short courses and ordinary university courses. Two courses on the production and applications of MEMS, which are planned for the George Washington University (USA) in the coming academic year, are outlined. Possibilities for laboratory courses on MEMS are also presented
