Engineering is the area of engineering that focuses on the design and
fabrication of electronic devices/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.
Those interested in a
career in microelectronic engineering should consider reviewing engineering programs that are
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.
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.
