Lau Ngei Ong, JTS Engineer

I joined X-FAB Sarawak in 2010 as one of the pioneers on under Journey to Semiconductor (JTS) program.  JTS, a comprehensive program for fresh graduates, has given me the exposure in different departments during the first six months in this sophisticated wafer foundry. With the On-The-Job Training in different departments, I get to have an overview of how different departments contribute from the first to the final stage of wafer fabrication.

After the 6-months Training, I have been assigned to work as a Process Characterization Engineer in Technology department.  I have the opportunity to be involved in many projects which have given me a wider exposure in the area of Process Characterization where I started to develop my technical knowledge in the semiconductor field and improve my confidence in dealing with our counterparts in Europe and US.  In 2011, I have also published four technical reports, mainly on low voltage devices, to share the results of research internally.  The challenging work in technology development enables me to develop my expertise and build a long term career in the semiconductor field. I am indeed proud to be one of the pioneers in this JTS program in X-FAB Sarawak.
