Micron Partner with OCC



Micron Partners with OCC



OCC has partnered directly with Micron Technology Inc., which is building the largest semiconductor fabrication facility in the history of the United States, right here in Onondaga County! This project will create nearly 50,000 NY jobs, including approximately 9,000 high-paying Micron jobs when the facility opens in 2025.

With at least 85% of OCC graduates staying in the Central New York region after graduation, OCC President Dr. Hilton expects this partnership will propel that number even higher!

We're building our own cleanroom!

OCC's cleanroom — an enclosed space used in manufacturing to keep particulates and other contaminants away — will be housed in the Whitney Applied Technology Center on campus. It will be a vital tool to prepare you for a job at Micron's Clay campus, which will be the nation's largest cleanroom at approximately 2.4 million square feet!

“We chose this location for many reasons, but most importantly — Central New York offers a rich pool of diverse talent, including communities that traditionally have been underrepresented in technology jobs.”

— Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron CEO

“This is the start of something transformative in scale and possibility for our state’s economic future."
