Through intensive, hands-on training sessions, students participating in the WE@UCLA Semiconductor Technical Training Academy will learn valuable skills from semiconductor industry leaders. In partnership with the Global Semiconductor Alliance, these experiential training sessions focus on exposing students to the wide variety of opportunities available in the semiconductor industry and strengthening students’ technical, analytical, critical thinking and communication skills to meet the challenges of today’s workplace. Through three 1.5-hour sessions taking place during Spring 2021 students participating in this program will walk away with tangible skills and a greater understanding of opportunities at specific semiconductor companies and the broader semiconductor industry. Guest instructors from an accomplished pool of industry professionals will share their experiences and advice to help participants acquire and master important skills for the future.


To be considered for the program, applicants must submit a resume and one-page essay with their response to the prompt. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of UCLA faculty, staff and community partners.  


Eligibility:  Undergraduate MAE, CS, CSE, ECE, MSE, Mech E & Chem E majors, who support increasing the representation of female engineers in the semiconductor industry.


A note on the application: Personal background questions help us to learn more about our candidate pool but will not be used in evaluating your acceptance into the program nor will your answers to these questions be shared with outside professionals reviewing candidate applications. Outside professionals reviewing applications will only have access to applicant resumes and essay question responses.
