Master of Science in Microelectronics Engineering
A MS degree is offered in the area of microelectronics manufacturing. The ME in microelectronics manufacturing engineering is a full-time, one-year intensive classroom- and laboratory-oriented program culminating with an internship. The MS in microelectronics manufacturing engineering is a full-time, two-year research-oriented program, which includes a master's thesis. Both programs are intended to prepare students for a career in the semiconductor industry and provide a broad interdisciplinary background in optics, chemistry, device physics, computer science, electrical engineering, photographic science, and statistics.
The objective of the MS program in microelectronic engineering is to provide an opportunity for students to perform graduate level research as they prepare for entry into the semiconductor industry or a Ph.D. program. The program requires strong preparation in the area of microelectronics, and requires a thesis. The program is available full-time or part-time, on campus, and consists of 33 credits (nine courses plus Thesis).
