HyRel Technologies, a global provider of quick turn semiconductor modification solutions, is pleased to announce the successful completion of its inaugural internship program. The first group of interns, who have now transitioned into valued employees, are engineering students at Arizona State University (ASU) and now members of HyRel’s Robotics and Automation development team.
The completion of HyRel’s first intern class marks a significant milestone for the company as it continues to drive forward its commitment to community engagement and fostering local talent. As part of an ambitious effort to introduce high school and college students to the world of semiconductor manufacturing, HyRel is collaborating with local schools.
Brian Watson, President & Founder at HyRel, expressed immense pride in the achievements of the interns, stating, “We are incredibly proud of their growth and achievements. Welcoming them into the HyRel fold has been a rewarding experience, and we look forward to seeing their contributions continue to elevate our team.”
HyRel’s commitment to community engagement goes beyond words, as the company actively seeks solutions to address the industry-wide challenge of skilled labor shortage. The semiconductor industry faces the ongoing need for skilled professionals, and HyRel is taking innovative steps to bridge this gap.
The first five interns have gained invaluable experience through this initiative, working on projects ranging from microrobotic platforms to circuit assembly. The success of the program is driving its expansion, with plans to involve 30-50 students in various companies across the Valley next year.
Watson shared his vision for the future of the program: “We’re not just creating a talent pipeline; we’re fostering the next generation of industry leaders. Our goal is to expand the program, offering courses on semiconductor fabs, chip design, and even Mandarin language skills, reflecting the dynamic nature of the semiconductor industry.”
HyRel is compliant with a range of critical industry standards, including GEIA-STD-0006, ANSI – J-STD-002, Mil-STD202, and Mil – STD-883, reflecting the company’s commitment to producing technology that meets the highest performance and reliability criteria.
HyRel remains dedicated to not only advancing its business but also fostering the growth and potential of individuals who will shape the future of the semiconductor industry.
