What is a semiconductor processing certificate?
Our semiconductor processing certificate is an academic program for graduate students who want to learn the process of creating semiconductor devices.
Semiconductor device manufacturing is an extensive set of fabrication processes used to manufacture electronic devices on the micrometer and nanometer length scales. These include wafer processing plus front and back-end operations and assembly. Semiconductor devices refer to pieces of hardware that rely on the electronic properties of a semiconductor material. Examples include solar cells, light emitting diodes, transistors and more.
This online graduate certificate program in semiconductor processing and manufacturing prepares you for a career in the manufacture of these essential devices and in semiconductor fabrication equipment manufacturing. Semiconductor fabrication equipment manufacturing is the creation of the various tools and processes needed to manufacture semiconductor devices.
