Microelectronics Boot Camp celebrates 5th graduation, 10 AM Friday, Sept. 22
Doors open at 9 AM for a tour of the Microelectronics lab facility on campus. Everyone is welcome to attend and cheer on the graduates!
The 10-week microelectronics training course prepares students for careers in manufacturing, focused on wire and ribbon bonding. This term, 11 students completed the course, and several have already received job offers from BAE Systems.
The program was developed in partnership with BAE Systems and with the support local companies such as SemiGen in Londonderry, and Mercury Systems in Hudson.
The Sept. 22 graduation takes place nearly one year since the first graduation in October 2016. After one year in operation, the hiring rate for Microelectronics Boot Camp graduates stands close to 95 percent.
The next session is recruiting now and begins Monday, Oct. 2.
