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.”

Yield Advantages Through Maintaining and Upgrading FOUP Populations

One of the longest held beliefs in semiconductor manufacturing is that yield is the single most import­ant factor in overall wafer processing costs. Even incremental yield increases can significantly reduce manufacturing cost per wafer, or cost per square centimeter of silicon. As such, yield improvement is critical to any successful semiconductor operation. As semiconductor device nodes continue to scale, and 7 nm lines are ramping to production, this belief continues to ring true.

Synergistic CMP Systems Improve Yield

Shrinking feature size, advances in interconnect metals, and the need for ever tighter defectivity control all point to the growing importance of chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) to optimize fab yields. More layers of each chip require CMP to achieve planarity specifications, and contamination must be kept to a minimum.

Examining Chip Manufacturing Challenges for Advanced Logic Architecture

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is surrounding us with extraordinary technologies that did not exist a few years ago. Autonomous vehicles are already being tested on public streets. Drones range from simple adolescent playthings to short- and long-range military and civilian purposes like surveying landforms, shooting movies, and delivering packages. Vast amounts of video content, created by professionals and amateurs alike, are being filmed, streamed, and stored. Surveillance, both fixed and mobile, is becoming commonplace, server farms are bigger than ever, and 4G networks are being supplemented or replaced with 5G. What all these trends have in common is that they generate enormous amounts of data that must be processed, transported, and stored faster and more reliably than ever before.
