Massachusetts Microelectronics Internship Program: a big focus on critical tiny components
The Massachusetts Microelectronics Internship (MMIP) offers a 10-week, full-time internship opportunity in microelectronics and hardware to freshmen and sophomores registered at Massachusetts universities. This summer, in the program's very first season, a cohort of 20 students spent the summer interning at different Massachusetts microelectronics companies. They received personalized mentorship and participated in a variety of training events and visits to microelectronics companies such as Raytheon Technologies, MITRE, and Lincoln Laboratory, where they had an opportunity to learn about semiconductor fabrication, enter a cleanroom facility where some of the most advanced chips for satellites are made, and try to hack modern microelectronics chips.
The application process for the second class of the MMIP is just starting, and the application deadline is October 15th.
