What is Semi High Tech U?
This high school program for students like YOU is a life-changing, internationally-acclaimed exploration into STEM careers.
Hosted at our community partner Nordson’s ASYMTEK facility and taught by industry instructors, activities are engaging, exciting and enlightening!
What Will I Do?
SEMI High Tech U is a 3-Day intensive workshop where 30 Nordson employees lead high school students from North County San Diego through modules relating to chemistry, biology, engineering, and design. Students also create resumes, participate in mock interviews and tour the University of California, San Diego.
Toward the end of the program, students select leaders from their class who became finalists in a speech competition. The winner earns a special prize from SEMI.
On the last day, Nordson holds a graduation ceremony for the student participants and their families.

First, read through the SEMI High Tech U informational handout to make sure you meet qualifications and can attend all three days of the program.
