Electrical Technology: Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology, A.A.S.

Associate in Applied Science
HEGIS # 5310
Chairperson: Anthony Kossmann
Cogan Hall, Room 145, (518) 629-7272

The Electrical Technology: Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology program prepares students for careers in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. The training provided is field oriented and generally covers the principles and practices that apply to industry applications of electricity and semiconductor manufacturing. Upon graduation, students will be prepared to work in capacity field service, test, and manufacturing, or may transfer to a baccalaureate program.

Most Electrical Technology: Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology courses take a mathematical approach, typically consisting of both theory and laboratory components. In the theory portion, students learn basic rules and principles and their applications. In the laboratory, students experimentally verify the validity of these rules and principles, while developing a proficiency in the use of electronic test equipment.

The mission of the Electrical Technology: Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology Program is to provide education for employment and transfer through a competency-based curriculum, integrated with hands-on instruction that supports developments in the semiconductor industry including present and emerging fields such as semiconductor fabrication, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and nanotechnology.
