"Micron’s $100 billion investment in Upstate New York will fundamentally transform the region into a global hub for manufacturing and bring tens of thousands of good-paying high-tech and construction jobs to Central New York."
— Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer 

Micron Technology, Inc. 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 already staying in the Central New York region after graduation, OCC President Dr. Hilton expects this new partnership will propel that number even higher.

And we're not done yet!  We're building our own cleanroom – an enclosed space used in manufacturing to keep particulates and other contaminants away. 

OCC's cleanroom will be housed in the Whitney Applied Technology Center on campus.  This will be a vital tool for OCC to prepare you for a job at Micron's Clay campus, which will be home to the nation's largest cleanroom at approximately 2.4 million square feet, the length of nearly 40 football fields!

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