Workforce Development for the Semiconductor Supply Chain
Saratoga County has been at the forefront of industry-academia partnerships with the result being several industry sanctioned programs with specific curriculums geared toward semiconductor manufacturing.One such program was developed by the State University of New York’s Hudson Valley Community College, called Training and Education Center for Semiconductor Manufacturing and Alternative and Renewable Technologies (TEC-SMART).
The TEC-SMART facility in Malta, NY features more than a dozen state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories to train the workforce in semiconductor manufacturing and green technologies, including photovoltaic, geothermal and wind energy.
TEC-SMART is a critical component in preparing our students for a new economy that promotes job growth, environmental sustainability and technological innovation.
Through TEC-SMART, Hudson Valley is producing a skilled workforce to serve major employers including GLOBALFOUNDRIES, General Electric, SunPower Inc. and Solar City.
