Semiconductor / Engineering Program

Upper Arlington’s Semiconductor program is in partnership with Columbus State Community College and Intel. This program focuses on providing students with college credit plus (CCP) courses in automation and process control, two key skills for electro-mechanical technicians and the manufacturing of semiconductors. Electro-mechanical technicians maintain industrial machines and help design new, safer, more efficient systems. These electro-mechanical technicians are trained in a variety of skill areas, making them attractive to companies that need their knowledge, skills, and expertise to maintain a vast array of high-tech mechanical, electro-mechanical, hydraulic, and automation systems used in production. Courses in the Semiconductor/Engineering program contribute towards the completion of a Semiconductor Fundamentals certificate program and/or Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology AAS degree at Columbus State Community College.

Semiconductor Program Courses and Descriptions

ENGT 1101 INDUSTRIAL FOUNDATIONS

1.0 credit — Grades 9, 10, 11 & 12
(1 period per day for 1 semester)
Prerequisites: Meet CCP Eligibility Requirements

In this course, students will be introduced to print reading and part visualization from drawings, including sketching multi-view drawings and three-dimensional models, location of key features and dimensioning specifications. Students introduced to beginning concepts in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Instruction in using precision measurement tools including, but not limited to scales, calipers, micrometers, dial indicators, coordinate measurement machines. Students will incorporate use of computer interfaces in metrology and basic statistical process control and topics in lean manufacturing.
