Today’s Microelectronics Workforce Challenge: Semiconductor ‘chips’ are a critical part of everyday life. They power every digital device we use, from phones to cars to hospitals and factory floors. While the US maintains a healthy leadership in chip design, U.S. chipmaking capacity has been declining for the past several decades, as production has been moved off-shore. Our country's economic and national security depends critically on reliable access to semiconductors and remaining at the leading edge of microelectronics research, development, design and manufacturing.
Workshop sessions will focus on best practices for successful, impactful and scalable education, workforce development (EWD) and outreach strategies as well as new and innovative approaches to EWD for U.S. semiconductor manufacturing.
