NEATEC presents a FREE, two-day workshop for college students. This 2-day hands-on training will provide an introduction to vacuum systems, system assembly and operation, system troubleshooting, and system applications in the semiconductor industry. Tailored for students interested in learning more about the semiconductor and solar cell manufacturing industries, this workshop stresses team-based learning and engineering-technology skills. This workshop is offered at SUNY Polytechnic’s Albany campus.

This workshop is designed for 2-year and/or 4-year college students with a background or interest in math, engineering, or technology

Attendees will be provided electronic copies of all workshop materials.

You will gain this knowledge and these skills:

  • Fundamentals of vacuum and pressure measurement, vacuum technology components, and system configurations
  • Experience in vacuum system assembly and testing, vacuum system operation and troubleshooting (leak detection)
  • Familiarity with advanced vacuum components and pumps and closed-loop gas flow control
