Course Description

    This course is designed for the Semiconductor Processing Industry to provide professional development for a broad audience of employees working for semiconductor manufacturers and suppliers. It is one of a series of overview courses developed to cover process issues for each major semiconductor processing step. This particular course stresses the fundamentals of current processes used in wet/dry etch. While the course is technical in nature it does not focus on specific process related information. It provides a broad overview of the wet/dry etch process and the general principles that are involved. The course also assists participants in understanding in general terms the potential relationship of wet/dry etch to the upstream and downstream processes in the Semiconductor Industry.


    Semiconductor Processing Overview Course offered through TEEX or course equivalent.
