BS Microelectronic Engineering
The fabrication of semiconductor devices and systems through microelectronics technology is a key driver of the world economy. The semiconductor industry is a shining example of U.S. manufacturing capability. Fostering a vigorous semiconductor industry in our country is important for the nation’s economic growth, long-term security, and the preparation and maintenance of a capable high-tech workforce. The Kate Gleason College of Engineering developed the first bachelor of science degree program in microelectronic engineering in the U.S., and the college continues to provide highly educated and skilled design, process, yield enhancement and test engineers for the semiconductor industry.
With the worldwide semiconductor industry growing at an astounding pace, RIT graduates are a valuable resource to the industry. This program offers students an unparalleled opportunity to prepare for professional challenges and success in one of the leading modern areas of engineering. Faculty committed to quality engineering education, state-of-the-art laboratories, strong industrial support, co-op opportunities with national companies, and smaller class sizes make this one of the most value-added programs in the nation.
The BS in microelectronic engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
