Career: The career path after Operations Engineering is only in manufacturing. TI is not the best at cross hiring people out of manufacturing. But for a career as a process or equipment engineer in a wafer fab, this was a really great start. You’re put in the same scenarios that you would see as a full-time hire, and you get to know the group you would be in. I really enjoyed my time there, but returned to Rice for my MBA to be more than just a technical engineer.
