UC Berkeley Extension Launches Three Online Programs in Semiconductor Technology

Programs target different levels of expertise with integrated circuit technology

BERKELEY, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 15, 2015 — UC Berkeley Extension announces three online integrated circuit (IC) semiconductor technology programs to meet the training needs of the surging worldwide semiconductor industry; the industry is predicted to reach $345 billion in sales this year, according to the most recent World Semiconductor Trade Statistics semiconductor market forecast. Extension’s new programs offer comprehensive curricula for professionals in varying stages of their technology careers.

Designed for technical professionals new to the field, the Professional Sequence in Semiconductor Technology Fundamentals explores microelectronics and microelectronic circuit theory, as well as IC design, semiconductor devices and computer-circuit simulation tools.

By contrast, the Certificate Program in Semiconductor IC Design is intended for professionals who have basic familiarity with the semiconductor field. This certificate combines theory and practice to provide a balanced mix of marketable skills and powerful tools to design, develop and deploy semiconductor ICs in many applications.

The Professional Sequence in Innovation Leadership for Technical Professionals demonstrates how highly successful leaders inspire people and achieve greatness, with particular focus on managing in a technical environment. Topics include basic financial management skills and their importance in decision making, planning and control.

“This is a versatile group of programs that can help technical professionals expand their skills in integrated circuit technology and technology management, depending on where they are in their careers—from newcomers to managers,” says Sean Butcher, UC Berkeley Extension program director for Technology and Engineering. “The fact that you can start these online courses at any time and proceed at your own pace makes them ideal for working professionals in this field.”
