Salary and Career Info

Microelectronics Manufacturing Engineering ME

Develop a knowledge of chemistry, physics, and engineering to better understand integrated circuit technology in microelectronics manufacturing.

Program skills

After completing the program, students will be able to design and understand a sequence of processing steps to fabricate a solid-state device to meet a set of geometric, electrical, and/or processing parameters as well as analyze experimental electrical data from a solid-state device to extract performance parameters for comparison to modeling parameters used in the device design. Students will have an understanding of current lithographic materials, processes, and systems to meet imaging and/or device patterning requirements and the relevance of a processor device, either proposed or existing, to current manufacturing practices. Students perform in a microelectronic engineering environment, as evidenced by an internship and appreciate the areas of specialty in the field of microelectronics, such as device engineering, circuit design, lithography, materials and processes, and yield and manufacturing.

Program facilities equipment

Students are exposed to the Semiconductor and Microsystems Fabrication Laboratory (SMFL). A 56,000 sq. ft. the lab opened in 1986–class 10 and class 100 cleanrooms; labs; & classrooms. IC lab includes a complete 6” CMOS wafer processing facility, mask-making, test & evaluation rooms, chemical & gas storage, gowning & line maintenance. Capabilities include chemical vapor deposition, plasma etching, ion implantation, diffusion, photolithography, metallization, surface analysis & electrical testing. An expansion of the SMFL has been dedicated to applied research & development work in Microsystems; which includes integrated microelectronics, MEMS, and photonic devices.​
