Four PTECH students visited the GlobalFoundries semiconductor fabrication plant in Malta to participate in a job-shadowing opportunity Monday.

Students at GlobalFoundries

Beam holds up a FOUP (front opening unified pod), which holds all the wafers and transports them from tool to tool during the fabrication process.

Juniors Nick Suits and Grant Stevens and sophomores Ann Ballou and Monique Beam spent their school day at GlobalFoundries, where they got a full tour, viewed a presentation on what Mock and her colleagues in the Lithography department do, and participated in a panel discussion with employees. The students also were able to suit up for the clean room.

Megan Mock from GlobalFoundries, who is serving as Beam’s business mentor this year, helped coordinate the day.
