M . sj By Steve Schaack OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF As Farah Chase-Dunn went through college she was one of those students who just went to class and headed home. She didn't realize that she had the opportunity to have her voice heard around campus as well as around the state. i Then the light struck her when she entered the confines of Utah Valley State College. "I realized that there was a whole new world of student leadership of having my voice heard by groups like the Board of Regents and the state legislature," said Chase-Dunn. Since that realization she has been a part of many groups and organizations that have helped further the students cause. Chase-Dunn's current responsibility is ASUVSC Assistant Vice-President of Academics. As she sits in meetings she is always reminding people of the end goal, and that is the students. "A lot of times the students get forgotten in the X . process," said Chase-Dunn. "We are trying to deliver the product but we forget who we are delivering it to." So the students can have their voice heard around v t campus and around the state they are encouraged to join clubs on campus. Areas such as ASUVSC, athletics ' and UV Leaders are just a few of the ways that students have been and are able to get involved. ' "All these are ways that students can have their voices heard," said Chase-Dunn. "We want students to know that they can have a voice if they so desire." One group that Farah Chase Dunn is involved with is called the Utah Intercollegiate Assembly. She is current ly serving as the new President of Senate for Utah Intercollegiate Assembly. This is a group of students from all the state colleges that get first hand experience on how the government runs. The number of delegates one gets is dependent upon the population of the school. UVSC has had the third most delegates in the state with 11. The 11 representatives from UVSC were Farah Chase-Dunn, Lyndee Lichfield, Jacob Sommer, Jim Blankenship, Swen Swenson, Ben Bartlett, Nick Parmley, James Toone, Nicole Davis, Joseph Wright, and Ben Fiser. These students had opportunities to prepare and pre sent bills that would go through the college house and senate. Each school was allowed to present three bills and if they were passed they would then have the opportunity to be chosen and passed through the state legislature. If the bill passes the college house and senate then f there is a large student lobbying committee that lobbies for the bills to be passed in state. "These are bills that help students in higher education," said Chase-Dunn. "Every school is allowed three bills C and we passed two of our three bills." One of the bills that was passed was in regards to the Tobacco bills. As a result of these bills portions of funds from the tax dollars of the sale of tobacco go to higher education and student health services. This bill passed unanimously. "We are very aware of the budget cuts and we know that a lot of the funding from student health services ISA ,?. Continued on page 3 "Voices" Photo by Andrew GreenNetxnews.

IC Layout design program getting you in the industry By Harvey Mecham A special to neexnews AMI Semiconductor, in conjunction with the Department of Electronic and Computer Technology at Utah Valley State College, has initiated an instructional program in Integrated Circuit Layout and Design. Through this program students are able to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Electronic Technology. Then if interested, they may proceed through a Bachelors Degree. IC layout and design courses have not often been recognized in academics, never the less they are recognized as a critical skill within the electronics industry. AMI semiconductor's Engineering Manager, Ryan Cameron and Senior Layout Designer, Brent Lindsay recognized this need and decided to do something about it. With the blessing of AMI, they initiated an IC layout course sequence at UVSC, which will begin its second year this fall. At the present time they, with UVSC, are actively recruiting students from Orem, and Provo, and other High Schools in the community whom, when trained, can help fill this national talent shortfall. The IC layout and design option, under the direction of Dr. Harvey Mecham, is one of less than a half dozen academically based programs in the United States. Its focus is on both the art and science of translating engineering schematics into the physical layout of the integrated circuit. This training, which merges talents in art with those of chemistry and electronics, builds the base for a future in micro electronics as well as nanotechnologies. Due to the high demand for this talent and low supply combined with the critical role of IC layout designers job stability and salary has been significant. This demand has been strong even during the recent economic down turn in other facets of the semiconductor industry. The IC layout and design program currently has openings in this and other related programs. Current starting salaries in the industry, with and Associate degree, range from $40,000 to $50,000. If interested contact Dr. Mecham at 801-S63-S629.
