Microelectronic Engineering
Microelectronic Engineering is the area of engineering that focuses on the design and fabrication of electronic de
vices/systems or subsystems using integrated circuits. Microelectronic Engineers are employed in the rapidly changing industry of microelectronics and microelectronic packaging by companies such as Intel, Texas Instruments,
IBM, and National Semiconductor.

Preparation
Those interested in a career in microelectronic engineering should consider reviewing engineering programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited.  Microelectronic engineering students take courses such as Semiconductor Devices, Linear Systems, Optics, and Silicon Processes. There is only one accredited degree program in microelectronic engineering, at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Be sure to check with ABET for updates and changes.

Co-ops
Students seeking any engineering job enhance their employment opportunities by participating in internship or co-op programs offered through their schools. These experiences provide the students with broad knowledge and experience, making them more attractive candidates to employers. Click here for more information.
