The course will provide fundamental technology information, transferring this knowledge to Thai engineering students and preparing them for future careers in this dynamic industry.
Scheduled to begin in January 2003, the course was developed as a thirty-hour elective course for Master's students majoring in microelectronics. In addition to providing curriculum content, Seagate is providing lecturers from its recording heads operations around the world.
Disc drive recording heads are one of the most advanced component technologies in the storage industry. Students who take this course will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts, as well as access local Seagate facilities dedicated to the production of recording heads.
According to Professor Mario Tabucanon, Provost of AIT, "Seagate and AIT's long term collaboration in offering technology courses is a key element in providing our students with valuable knowledge and insight into the disc drive industry. Our work with Seagate is part of our mission to provide educational opportunities that enable our students to effectively meet the needs of our evolving job market."
