Semiconductor Cleanroom Maintenance Technician, One Year Technical Certificate
Curriculum Code #6501
The Semiconductor Cleanroom Maintenance Technician one-year technical certificate is structured to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as an entry-level cleanroom maintenance technician in a semiconductor manufacturing environment. Training and education is provided in the fundamental concepts of semiconductor manufacturing, working in a cleanroom, vacuum pump application and maintenance, and introductory skills used in electronic measurement, pneumatics & hydraulics, blueprints, wiring diagrams, OSHA safety, fitness and wellness, and the use of Microsoft Windows, Office, and Teams software, The student will learn and apply principles in actual cleanroom activities while gowned up in a bunny suit. Courses taken within this 1 year certificate are stackable into degrees such as Industrial Mechanical Technician, SMART Automation, and Microelectronic Manufacturing.
