ECE pioneers semiconductor fabrication education | 150 Engage Illinois Office of Corporate Relations
Celebrating our Sesquicentennial 1867-2017

In 1965, Professor Chih-Teng Sah received an NSF grant to purchase equipment for an undergraduate laboratory to accompany lectures specifically on semiconductor materials and solid-state devices, which allowed ECE ILLINOIS to pioneer education on fabricating those materials. The lab evolved into today's ECE 444, Integrated Circuit Fabrication Laboratory, and ECE ILLINOIS began pioneering work in teaching nanofabrication to undergraduates with its move to the new ECE Building in 2014.
