2014 - 2015 Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology

Program Option:

AAS - Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology

Semiconductor manufacturing consists of a series of complex processes by which miniaturized electrical devices or microchips are created for electronic equipment. Students in this program will receive instruction in related academic subjects, safety procedures, statistical process control techniques, and the operation of machinery and equipment for the fabrication and processing of semiconductors.

Collin’s Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology Program is a joint workforce education program with Richland College. The AAS degree program prepares students for employment as semiconductor equipment technicians.

Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with the Collin academic advisor prior to beginning this program to verify course transferability.
