Certificate Programs in Semiconductor Technology, IC Design and Innovation Leadership

The new set of certificates expands upon the solid education provided by the original Integrated-Circuit Design & Techniques certificate, while providing three different levels of education and skill development:

  • The Professional Sequence in Semiconductor Technology Fundamentals is intended for beginning practitioners, technician and processors.
  • The Certificate Program in Semiconductor IC Design is ideal for professionals who want to expand their design theoretic and skills.
  • The Professional Sequence in Innovation Leadership for Technical Professionals gives seasoned technical professionals the management, organizational and leadership skills to effectively lead groups, departments, plants and more.

The three new programs are especially tailored for professionals ranging from IC beginners to technology managers.
