Are the collector and emitter terminals of a bipolar transistor interchangeable?

No. Use bipolar transistors in a proper orientation. The transistor's internal structure is optimized for forward-mode operation.
Interchanging the collector and emitter terminals not only degrades the transistor performance but also might cause permanent damage to the device.

  • Note: Except transistors designed for muting applications
