Profile

Joined:2014, new graduate
Major at university:Machine Systems Engineering


As a student, M. N. studied all aspects of hardware (mechanical and electrical) from development and design to manufacturing and maintenance, and acquired his basic skills as a developer through the production of robots. His desire to engage in development through his involvement in various aspects of moving systems as a whole and his interest in precision and high-speed operation of semiconductor manufacturing systems from the time he was in university led him to choose Shinkawa Ltd. as his desired place of employment. After joining the company, he further expanded the breadth of his expertise to include machine design with a focus on electrical design, and he has been involved in broad areas in the development of systems with a view to also tackling process development in the future.

Becoming a development engineer in the semiconductor industry is something that I longed for.
When development is going well, I feel a sense of fulfillment that I cannot get from everyday life.

In addition to my work in machine design, where I have been able to apply my undergraduate experience in processing, I have been involved in system development mainly in electrical design in broad areas such as board design, unit design, wiring design, DSP, FPGA, and motor control. At present, I am in charge of the development of a next-generation bonding system and I am studying hard every day in efforts to make development machines that will be a game changer in the bonding market. Of course, there are times when development does not proceed according to plan but when a device or unit works exactly as planned, or when it is positively evaluated by customers, I feel a deep sense of fulfillment that is not achievable in everyday life. Times like this remind me of how much I love the work of systems development, and how happy I am to have chosen my current occupation.

My father had a significant influence on my decision to become a development engineer. He had worked as a development engineer in the semiconductor industry, and I was strongly attracted to this industry, which was leading the world. From around the time I was in junior high school, I was already thinking about engineering as my future profession.

To make the most of every available opportunity,
I do not want to limit the field I work in.

One important principle that I always bear in mind in my work is not to limit myself to a specific area of work. To take full advantage of opportunities to achieve my potential, I try not to turn down any opportunities that come my way for any reason other than time constraints. To become a leader in systems development, I believe I must have a certain level of understanding in diverse areas rather than just one area. This is because unless I can get a picture of the overall image, I will not be able to decide on my own what I need to do next.

Shinkawa has an environment where we are allowed to take initiative in various areas of work, if we so desire. Although I joined the company as an electrical design engineer, I am currently in charge of machine design, and in the future I intend to become involved in process development. At present I am making preparations for that.

In the department where I work at present, the workload for each person is rather heavy. Although I do not recommend our workplace to people who want to leave the office at a fixed hour every day, it is not difficult to take holidays as we wish. My applications for holiday leave or time off in lieu have never been rejected.

As an engineer who can play an active role,
regardless of the field, I want to be a leader at the forefront of systems development.

My aim is to be an engineer who can play an active role, regardless of the field. And my ultimate goal is to be a leader at the forefront of systems development.

If you want to take on various challenges that will enable you to grow as an engineer, I cannot think of a more suitable environment than Shinkawa Ltd. I cannot say that the work will be easy but I can promise you that you will find your work fulfilling.
Moreover, if you are a person who aspires to work overseas, you can do so irrespective of the department you belong to. Being able to observe first hand the production line at a customer’s plant, listen to the sounds, and be able to learn all aspects of the work site from the environment and how the equipment is used to the general atmosphere of operations will be a valuable experience.

I would like to invite anyone who wants to grow as an engineer or anyone who just has a love of machines to come and join us in creating the semiconductor industry of the future!
