Lam Research Signs MoU with IISc for Fellowship Program

As part of the sponsored fellowship program, second-year master’s students will be selected from the mechanical and electrical engineering streams of CeNSE.

Lam Research India has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bengaluru to offer a sponsored fellowship program for second-year Master of Technology (MTech) students, starting in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Lam Research MoU IIScLam India has been a part of CeNSE’s Industry Affiliate Program (IAP) since 2014 and is continuously engaging with the center to collaborate on multiple innovative projects to advance the state of semiconductor technologies.

“We are delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with IISc to develop talent and drive the technological innovation in the semiconductor industry,” said Rangesh Raghavan, corporate vice president, and general manager at Lam Research India. “With access to a talent pool as strong as IISc’s, we expect to significantly enhance Lam Research India’s innovation contribution to the ecosystem. This MoU will facilitate the training and development of CeNSE MTech students as we continue to work on advanced semiconductor technologies at Lam India.”

“Industry-sponsored CeNSE MTech Fellowships are aimed at attracting talent from the traditional areas of engineering and science, and exposing them to new opportunities in the emerging electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industry,” said Prof. Srinivasan Raghavan, chairperson of CeNSE at IISc Bangalore. “Lam Research has been our Industry Affiliate for many years, and this collaboration is an extension of our commitment to solving industry challenges through academic research and technological innovations.”

The MoU reaffirms Lam India’s commitment to developing deeper industry-academia collaboration while creating opportunities for CeNSE students to acquire specialized skills leading to career opportunities in the wafer fabrication equipment (WFE) industry.

As part of the sponsored fellowship program, second-year master’s students will be selected from the mechanical and electrical engineering streams of CeNSE.

The selected students will receive an opportunity to conduct their MTech project on research topics related to Lam Research’s domains of thermal management, materials and coating, additive manufacturing, Equipment Intelligence®, and others, with CeNSE faculty advising on their dissertations.

The program will help the students to bridge the gap between the foundation they have acquired in their undergraduate courses in mechanical, electrical, materials, and chemical engineering or physical and chemical sciences and the job requirements of companies in this area.
