The growth of the semiconductor sector and its investments in Finland are also increasing the need for skilled personnel. The semiconductor companies Applied Materials/Picosun, Okmetic, Murata, Bosch Sensortec ja Kyocera Technologies are donating funds to Aalto University to offer exciting summer jobs in the School of Electrical Engineering, the School of Chemical Engineering and the School of Science in the summer of 2024.

The positions are suitable for both Bachelor and Master level students and the exact content of the work will be tailored based on the applicant’s own interests (and skills) and the group’s research profile. These positions are an excellent choice for those students that want to work later in Finnish semiconductor industry.

The semiconductor sector requires a wide range of skills

Semiconductors play a crucial role in many modern technologies. Semiconductor technology is a field of materials science and electrical engineering that deals with the design, development and production of electronic components made from semiconductor materials. Semiconductors, such as for example silicon, have unique electrical properties that allow them to be used in a variety of electronic devices such as integrated circuits and LED lights. These materials are central to modern electronics and form the basis of the microelectronics industry.

The semiconductor sector offers a wide range of career opportunities in Finnish and international companies. Students can find their place in areas such as silicon wafers, sensors or process and equipment development.
