Engineering Leadership Development Program Marks its First Year

The first year of our Engineering Leadership Development Program (ELDP) has been completed. ELDP is a rotational program that cultivates future technical leaders through investment in professional development for high-potential engineering graduates.

The rotational program consists of a three-year training period in which recent college graduates are provided with a structured experience in various business and functional areas of the organization. This program is designed to prepare participants with a strong cross-functional foundation to be used as building blocks for a leadership-focused career path. The program’s first participants are now transitioning to their second rotation, with new participants entering their first.

 

 

Our ELDP consists of three, twelve-month assignments – Product Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Quality Engineering. There are multiple tracks running concurrently across selected Entegris locations (Billerica, Mass.; Chaska, Minn.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Burnet, Texas; and Danbury, Conn.), presenting opportunities to graduates based in a variety of geographic areas.

 

“This program provides high-potential graduates with a structured career development program that uniquely exposes them to multiple technical disciplines. It also includes leadership training and skills development that will ultimately set them up for success in their chosen role,” said Sue Rice, senior vice president, Human Resources, Entegris. “Once the participants complete the program, these employees will have an advanced understanding of our functions, which will help them navigate their next career move. As an added incentive, ELDP participants are exposed to, and able to participate in, some exclusive programs around innovation.”

Defending Against Dangerous Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Much as a bolt of lightning can strike in one spot and travel, creating a path of destruction in its wake, a single electrostatic discharge can have a similar effect on a semiconductor manufacturer’s bottom line. For advanced-node manufacturers, the risk posed by electrostatic discharge has become amplified by the move to fluoropolymers, a consequence of stainless-steel process tool components failing to meet increased purity requirements.

Solving Defect Challenges in the EUV Process

The drive for ever more powerful microprocessors and greater memory storage places demands on all steps of the semiconductor wafer fabrication process. At some point, incremental improvements are no longer sufficient, and further device shrinking requires a completely different technology. The semiconductor industry is now experiencing this with lithography, where extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography is replacing 193 nm immersion (193i) lithography for more and more critical chip layers.

Developing Advanced Deposition Materials: A Recipe for Success

NEW PARADIGMS IN MATERIALS DEPOSITION FOR BOTH LOGIC AND MEMORY DEVICE MANUFACTURING We live in an increasingly connected world that has developed an almost unquenchable thirst for data. To process this raw data into something that is actionable requires the most advanced artificial intelligence (AI) chips for a multitude of applications, from machine learning and autonomous vehicles, to smart cities and efficient energy sources. The quest to develop these devices is driving integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) to push semiconductor manufacturing technology to its very limits.
