Project Integration Engineer

16 April 2019

As a Project Integration Engineer you will act as the linking pin between our customers, development engineers and production teams

What you will do

  • You will start with a period of training in IC processing and related Process and Measurement techniques. You will learn in detail how the imec Fabs operate.
  • Then you will start your job, with proper support.
  • Using your knowledge of the Fab, you validate production requests of customers (integration and research) and you assess the boundary conditions and rules to ensure proper and efficient execution. You help translating technologies developed in R&D into production worthy processes.
  • You follow-up on different projects in detail with good sense of urgency.  You make correct analyses and take the necessary decisions.
  • You attune the needs of the business lines with the capabilities of production.
  • You define, execute and follow up improvement projects to optimize the cooperation between the customers and the pilot lines.
  • You coordinate across-unit actions and projects. You work with integration engineers, scientists and manufacturing engineers.
  • One week out of six, you are line manager. During that week, you control the pilot lines and follow up the lots as they move through the Fab. You make sure high priority lots get proper attention and notify the appropriate people when action is required. In case of problems you determine action plans and you report to the customers on a daily basis.
  • You stay up-to-date by building a strong network inside and outside imec.
