NanoNanu: Big Benefits Come in Small Packages - But Only for Men

Abstract:
Where the Boys Are was a movie and song made famous by Connie Frances in the 1960's. Today, where the boys are is engineering school, where, sadly, the girls aren't. That's right, female engineers are few and far between as demonstrated by the audience at the Common Platform event that concentrated on chip manufacturing and nanotechnology.

CNSE is trying to change that. We spoke with Michael Liehr. He specializes in advanced CMOS integration, 3D/packaging, advanced equipment and process control, in addition to electronic materials and processing. Professor Dr. Liehr, who insisted I call him Michael, said the college is making an effort to bring women into the field.
