MicroElectronics Training, Industry and Skills

METIS is bridging the skills gap in the microelectronics sector for a more competitive Europe. The Sector Skills Alliance, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, brings together a consortium of 19 key partners to develop skills intelligence deliver the METIS curriculum and training and promote microelectronics as a career choice.

Testing of Curriculum & Training Started

The METIS consortium develops curricula, training content, and courses in the 4 main areas of microelectronics. Beta testing of the first METIS training modules has started and the testing of all 43 modules will last until the end of June 2023. Many courses are already available for testing, the rest of the modules will follow soon.
