TC3 To Offer Free Semiconductor Training for Veterans


In a release, Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3) has announced the school has been added to a National Science Foundation project at Penn State University. The project looks to bring veterans into the nanotechnology workforce, an area in the tech field that is growing significantly in Upstate New York.

TC3 says the school will form a partnership with Cornell University and offer veterans within the area an opportunity to enroll in a free 12-week program. The program will have a focus on teaching both principles and practices that are needed to be successful in the semiconductor industry.

The new program will begin for the fall semester and will be no cost for veterans and active duty military members, including spouses and dependents. Once the class is over after 12-weeks will have earned a Microelectronics and Nanomanufacturing Certificate from Penn State University. They will also be eligible to take the three nanotechnology stackable certification exams administered by the international standards organization ASTM International.

More information on the program, which will be offered through Tompkins Cortland Community College BIZ can be done by contacting Director of Continuing Education and Workforce Development, Carrie Coates Whitmore via email at Biz@TompkinsCortland.edu.
