    Abstract

    In an integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing company, the workforce has many skill and education levels but everyone has to work together and communicate effectively on complex technology issues. The microelectronics technology curriculum at ASU has therefore taken on the same challenge - to present a common set of device and process concepts to classes at different educational levels in an integrated teaching factory environment. This experiment in education delivery has the familiar broad range of parameters students from diverse backgrounds, several degree levels and the gamut of content treatments that constitute technology. We present conclusions from many of the delivery combinations. Our experience is that we can indeed manage common concepts at many degree levels in an integrated environment. The biggest obstacles are concerned with student communication skills, their management of ambiguity, numerical fluency and troubleshooting.
