Semiconductors, or microchips, are the “brains” of computers and can be found in every type of electronic device across diverse markets that include manufacturing, the automotive industry, biotechnology, computers, appliances, and cell phones. The Internet, wireless communications, satellites and modern medicine all depend on the microchips that control sophisticated computer systems.
Become the kind of highly skilled technician that the industry needs. Learn how to install, repair and maintain the equipment it takes to make a modern semiconductor chip. Because of increased automation, most new positions will be for technicians as machinery becomes more complex and needs more monitoring.
Jobs might include semiconductor manufacturing specialist and equipment or process technician. MFI has partnered with Analog Devices to bring this course into a reality.
A Good Career Bet
Microchip technology is used in every type of electronic device across diverse markets that include manufacturing, the automotive industry, biotechnology, computers, appliances, and cell phones.
Semiconductor manufacturing technicians are highly skilled people who test new kinds of semiconductor devices (which are commonly known as integrated circuits or microchips) being designed for use in many kinds of modern electronic equipment. They may also test samples of devices already in production to assess production techniques. They help develop and evaluate the test equipment used to gather information about the semiconductor devices. Working under the direction provided by engineers in research laboratory settings, they assist in the design and planning for later production or help to improve production yields.
As one of the pillars of the country’s industrial growth, the electronics industry is a top export performer with a 51.3 percent total share of total exports in 2016 worth $28.8 billion. Approximately 2.6 million people are employed (direct and indirect) in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
