Semiconductor Engineering Concentration

Pending final approval, NNU will launch this new track of our ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Engineering program in 2023 to provide specialized, world-class training in the areas of semiconductor materials, devices, microelectronic circuits, integrated circuit design and test, process fabrication, and packaging. This new concentration will allow students to specialize their undergraduate engineering experience in the area of semiconductor technology. NNU offers six other Engineering concentrations: Agricultural, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Engineering Physics, and Mechanical. Graduates of our program are in high demand by companies. They are building a higher quality of life for the future and solving the most compelling engineering challenges facing our world today. NNU Engineers are Designing to Change the World for Good!

In the next 10 years, about 100,000 semiconductor workers will need to be trained nationwide. To address this huge need, a network of 100 US universities and community colleges, named the American Semiconductor Academy, has been formed in partnership with the SEMI consortium of 400 US companies. NNU Semiconductor Engineering is a part of this new network of schools. In addition to our normal interdisciplinary engineering coursework, students in this new NNU program will take:

  • Semiconductor Devices
  • Solid-State Physics
  • Semiconductor Characterization Lab
  • Microelectronic Circuits
  • Integrated Circuits Design, Package & Test
  • Semiconductor Fabrication, in the Idaho Microfabrication Lab cleanroom

NNU’s Semiconductor Engineering will prepare you for both the design and manufacturing of chips: The electrical engineering of microelectronics, the chemical engineering of gas reactions, the mechanical engineering of tools and packaging, the materials engineering of new devices, and the industrial engineering of supply chain and logistics. Courses will be supplemented with hands-on learning in the lab and fab, new scholarships, apprenticeships, internships, and online learning and simulation hubs.

I’m very prepared for my future. I’ve been interning at Micron Technology through a connection I made at the Engineering & Computer Science Career Fair. Now that internship will turn into a job when I graduate. Not only do I have a strong technical background in engineering, but I’ve also acquired skills with people, communication, and tools.
