|SSIA Student Outreach Industry Site Visit|
SSIA organised an Industrial Tour of Students from NUS , NTU and JC students from Raffles Institution, NUS school of Science and Mathematics on 21st February 2014.
Students first stopped at Broadcom where they were given an introduction of the semiconductor industry and the various Broadcom product portfolios. And highlight of the morning was that students had the opportunity to work on the a few Raspberry Pie projects under the mentorship of the Team Broadcom.
The group then moved on to Globafoundries for lunch. A team led by Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Foundries Mr KC Ang and his senior members of the team welcomed the students at one of the Fabs at Woodlands and gave them an extremely rare opportunity to visit key facilities of the company with technical managers and industry experts. It was a golden opportunity for the students to understand Semiconductor wafer fabrication process which is one of the most complex manufacturing processes.
