Why Cleanroom training with PaCE?

Our Cleanroom modules provide basic training for the chip manufacturing work environment. Intended students for the Introduction to Microchip Fabrication course are new hires in the technology companies with wafer fabrication cleanroom requirements. 

The Technician training (currently held only in Summer) provides a more hands-on training in the cleanroom itself to prepare the students for a technician job in the wafer manufacturing cleanroom environment.
