Students Attend SEMI High Tech U

SEMI High Tech U (HTU) is a three-day program for high school students who want to know more about careers in the tech industry. Students put science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) skills to use during hands-on workshops led by industry volunteers.

All workshops are activity-based and taught by tech professionals:

  • Light up the room with an experiment facilitated by an engineer
  • Make your own wafer with a manufacturing engineer
  • Launch hacky sacks with quality engineers to see the importance of statistics
  • Become a human calculator to see how logic gates work
  • Interview with a tech recruiter or manager to learn how to get the job you want
  • Flex your teamwork skills to solve a real-world problem

In addition to seeing the connection between STEM classes and tech careers, students hear from industry professionals about their school-to-work journeys.

This event is organized by the SEMI Foundation,committed to helping high school students gain a better understanding of how Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are used to solve “real world” problems. We foster a renewed commitment to explore a future in the technology industry. Since 2001, their HTU program has reached over 6,900 students in 12 states and nine countries.
