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.”

Precision Engineered Techniques for Coating Plasma Chamber Components

Migration from 2D to 3D structures for high-density memory devices changes the nature of etching and deposition processes, especially as the number of layers for 3D NAND integration grows to 96 and beyond, and new process chemistries become commonplace. The greater number of lengthy processing steps and high aspect ratio (HAR) features involved place new demands on all steps of the chip manufacturing process, including etching, deposition, and cleaning equipment. Consistent process stability becomes harder to achieve.

Transitioning from Predictable to Pervasive Defectivity

Most equipment and process engineers become experts at analyzing a wafer map to quickly identify signatures indicating when their equipment or process was the perpetrator of a maverick yield event. But as defect signatures become more subtle and harder to quickly identify, there is a significant need to consider not just what in-line inspection systems are identifying, but specifically what they are not identifying.
