Microelectronics Boot Camp

With manufacturing jobs still in high demand, job training in microelectronics is attempting to fill the gap in the labor market. Nashua Community College is also hoping to meet industry demands through its unique microelectronics boot camp — a 10 week, noncredit career training program that teaches technical skills used to ultimately help with military defense or missile guidance.

“Microelectronics is all very hands-on work,” said Cheyenne Rivera, 22, of Nashua. “Our graduates are certified at the end of the 10 weeks in wire ribbon bonding and die attach for microelectronic components.”
