This customized MS Engineering, specialization in Systems Engineering program is targeted to provide Lam Research engineers with a foundation for specialization in systems engineering.

Engineers will be able to gain a better understanding of complex Lam systems, learn how to assess systems performance, diagnose issues and design and implement solutions.

For the convenience of working students:

  • Classes are held on Lam Research’s campus and online (hybrid delivery).
  • Classes meet once a week (on Tuesdays) for 11 weeks.
  • Students will be able to earn a Master’s Degree in under 3 years.
  • Program is delivered in executive cohort style - students take all courses with the same group of peers, one course at a time.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

By the end of the program, students should be able to:

1. Apply system engineering principles to develop problem statements for complex systems.

2. Design and assess systems-based solutions using engineering science principles related to etching and cleaning.

3. Utilize engineering skills to understand and optimize the control of chamber systems.

4. Communicate problems and solutions to multi‐disciplinary teams.

5. Recognize deficiencies in existing understanding and synthesize multiple resources to build personal skills and abilities.
