The new bachelor of applied science in microelectronic manufacturing is an industry-tailored, hands-on program with core content in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and microelectronic manufacturing, design, assembly and prototyping with additional content in quality, electronics and drafting. Building on the associate of applied science in MEMS, the bachelor’s degree program will develop your knowledge in computer science, electronics, soldering, chemistry and mechanics and teaches you to perform work on a microscopic scale. 


Our faculty work closely with industry partners to do develop this program to meet industry needs and prepare you for in-demand career opportunities.

Job opportunities include:

  • Manufacturing engineer
  • Process engineer
  • PCB team lead
  • Electronic engineer

Paid Internships

We’ve partnered with over 30 different Northeast Ohio microelectronics companies who are looking for trained workers to ensure that our classes teach you exactly what they want you to know on the job. The program utilizes state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing and designing electronic and MEMS systems. Paid internships are available through the TRAIN OH program and through work-based learning courses in the MEMS degree. 


Related Associate Degree Programs

The  mechatronic technology – micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) associate degree program provides all necessary coursework to prepare you for direct admission to the bachelor of applied science degree program.

Other associate degree programs and coursework will also prepare you for admission to the program, with additional coursework needed. Those programs include: automation engineering technology – maintenance/repairmanufacturing engineering technology – mechanical design, and electronic engineering technology – applied electronics major. Be sure to meet with your advisor to determine which courses will apply to the MEMS bachelor’s degree program.
