July 9 2020 – Together with the HAN University of Applied Sciences, CITC developed a Semiconductor Packaging module tailored to the specific needs of the companies involved. This part-time course, with a duration of 5 months, enables both students and company employees to get training in all the aspects that are relevant in the field of packaging, both theoretical and practical. The course includes a practical assignment that will be carried out on the premises of either a Semiconductor company or CITC.

In the Semiconductor Packaging module you will get acquainted with the semiconductor industry and delve into the final step of chip manufacturing, the phase in which the chip is ‘packaged’ in its housing. Packaging is becoming more and more involved. Developments such as system-on-chip, embedded cameras, RF, sensors and Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) place high demands on the manufacturing process and the competencies of affected employees. Packages are becoming more complex and more customer-specific, while their serial size decreases. This module focuses on the design and manufacturing of semiconductor packages and the associated assembly techniques. The module was developed through collaboration between HAN University of Applied Sciences, CITC and its partners NXP, Nexperia, Ampleon, TU Delft and TNO.
