EDUCATIONAL VISIT TO INTEL PRODUCTS & INTEL MICROELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING STUDENTS OF UNIVERSITI TEKNOLOGI PETRONAS
On the 25th February 2020, the IEEE Sensors and Nanotechnology Joint Councils Chapter organized an educational visit to Intel Products in Kulim and Intel Microelectronics in Bayan Lepas. The trip was attended by 28 attendees consisting mainly of students from UTP taking the electrical and electronics engineering course.
The main objective of the trip is to expose students with the electronics/semiconductor industry. Intel Kulim and Intel Penang house the lab facilities to design, manufacturing and test of microelectronic devices where students will have the opportunity to tour the manufacturing lines and labs which are related to their studies. Aside from that, students will also be exposed with System-on-Chip (SoC) design activities which will be guided by Intel’s team of experts.
The participants learnt a lot about the various equipment and methodology used by Intel to manufacture their semiconductor products. During the guided session, the students experience first hand design activities to give them a feel of what it is like to work in a SoC design environment.
