Through a new partnership with local employers and Lorain County Community College’s Business Growth Services, students have the opportunity to earn an associate degree in microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS) while receiving paid, on-the-job training.
The MEMS degree is a hands-on program with a focus on work based learning through paid internships to build that necessary skill sets for students entering the microelectronics industry. The MEMS and microelectronics technology programs utilize state-of-the-art laboratory facilities containing equipment for testing, troubleshooting, calibrating, analyzing, designing and assembling of electronic and MEMS systems.
The MEMS program can combined with the Train OH program, a new Learn & Earn degree program where students are selected by Northeast Ohio microelectronics employers for a paid internship starting the first semester of classes and continuing for five consecutive semesters.
