What is this course about?
The Microelectronics Boot Camp at Nashua Community College prepares students for entry level wire bonding positions at local companies. On successful completion of this non-credit program, students are guaranteed an interview at BAE Systems.
The course was designed to both meet industry demands, and teach students basic military standards and assembly techniques for radio frequency (RF) and microwave electronic (MW) assemblies. The skills are taught with visual lectures and hands-on practice using equipment common to microelectronics assembly techniques.
The Microelectronics Boot Camp starts a new session January 2018, followed by another session in March. Each session runs 10 weeks for 40 hours per week. The program cost is $5,500, and sessions run throughout the year.
While Microelectronics Boot Camp students practice the latest wire and ribbon bonding techniques, they photograph and record their work to build a portfolio for future interviews.
This spring, microelectronics students also participated in an intensive three-day workshop on campus to earn their Lean White Belt.
After one year of offering the Microelectronics Boot Camp, the hiring rate stands at 95 percent.
