    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


    By responding to the needs of many organizations, a critical mass of faculty and industry expertise has been assembled around the Microelectronics Teaching Factory (MTF) at ASU's East Campus. With students from the University and local Community Colleges, the aggregate number of students provides a large load for the MTF. All students (and faculty) follow the same safety training and industry-standard qualification. The BS classes follow a sequence: web-based preparation; simulation to explore key relationships; MTF lab work appropriate to the degree level; class work to integrate the learning experience and internship or project in one of the participating companies. The goal is to develop an efficient learning environment that meets the needs of all stakeholders - industry, academics and students.
