  • I joined IC Mask Design in 2012 straight out of my BEng in Electronic Eng. I had originally intended to pursue my BEng (hons) but after I noticed the position of graduate layout engineer I decided to apply. I was surrounded by a highly experienced, skilled and motivated group of senior engineers always willing to help me with any issue I encountered and providing guidance every step of the way endowing me with the knowledge and skill set required to overcome any issue or challenge I encountered in the world of physical design. In essence I was learning while also being an effective member of the engineering team. IC Mask Design encouraged me to return to further my education on a part time basis (something which was quite important to me) providing financial support and flexibility allowing me to maintain a healthy balance between my work, college and personal life.  Considering all of the above which all stemmed from that initial opportunity they gave me I owe them a serious debt of gratitude and would implore any graduate seeking a rewarding challenge with an interest in the field of IC design to apply.”

  • “As a graduate I believe IC Mask Design was the perfect company for me to begin my career in the semiconductor industry. I received mentorship from the experts in the field of IC layout, who specialize in delivering professional training to many eminent companies, which enabled me to become a competent engineer over a relatively short period of time. I also gained valuable experience, having worked with many companies, and different technologies, during my time with the company. This exposure provided me with a solid understanding of the industry and appreciation for my line of work, which motivated me to pursue a part-time master’s degree in IC design. This was strongly encouraged and supported by the company’s leadership. Overall, I am very grateful to IC Mask Design for the opportunities and personal growth that it provided me with, and I would highly recommend this company to any graduate looking for a challenging and engaging role.”
