Starting Off On The Right Foot

We’re hiring our first class of engineering graduates for the Kumamoto fab.

As part of our Kumamoto launch, you will build a network of Japanese and international colleagues going through the same experience as you and with similar career paths.

Of course, TSMC provides the formal support.

This starts with a 6- to 9-month training program in Taiwan (exact duration of training will depend on your position). While the fab is under construction, you will learn more about your role in Taichung City.

In this way, you will use the same processes and equipment that will run the Kumamoto fab. The training and all communications will take place in Japanese. While the main aim will be to help you gain the skills you need to be successful in your new career, it is also an amazing opportunity to experience a new culture and make potentially lifelong friends and connections.
