Relationships with occupations

Essential skill

Test semiconductors is an essential skill of the following occupations:

Optional skill

Test semiconductors is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Semiconductor processor: Semiconductor processors manufacture electronic semiconductors as well as semiconductor devices, such as microchips or integrated circuits (IC’s). They may also repair, test, and review the products. Semiconductor processors work in cleanrooms and therefore need to wear a special lightweight outfit that fits over their clothing to prevent particles from contaminating their worksite.
