After being Honorably Discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1987, Albert began an extensive career as an Engineering Technician, servicing, installing, and troubleshooting Ultra-High Vacuum Systems with Watkins-Johnson, Accatel Comptec, Novellus Systems, Applied Materials, and finally attaining his “Dream Job”, as a Sr. Field Service Engineer, with Hitachi High Technologies America (HTA), in 2001. As a Sr. Field Service Engineer, Albert maintained a Customer Base of 21 Semiconductor Companies, several College/Universities, and Federal Government institutions, through the installation, customer instruction, servicing, and providing preventive maintenance services, on Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM).
After resigning from HTA, 2005, Albert took on roles as Project/Production Manager and soon after as an Independent Field Service Engineer. Albert’s career path has since positioned him as a Mentor to Middle, High School, and College Students, introducing and exposing them to careers in STEM. An Inventor with several Pat. Pending’s and Visionary, Albert is not just recruiting Engineering Students, but Grooming them at an early age. This is done through collaborating with various Educational Community Organizations, Technology companies, and public schools to fill the many opportunities available for persons of color in a plethora of industries throughout the Silicon Valley and the World. And High-Quality CAD Instruction is a major key into those industries.
