Workshop Structure: 

The workshop is organized into three sequential sessions: (1) EWD for Manufacturing and Packaging of Microelectronics; (2) EWD for Integrated Circuit and Heterogeneous Integration System Design; and (3) Expanding Diversity in the Semiconductor Workforce. Sessions will include keynote addresses from leaders in industry, government and academia, a round of ‘lightning’ presentations to maximize participation from contributors across the broader EWD spectrum, and panel discussions to drill down on selected topics.

Workshop Agenda:

Thursday, February 3, 2022

9:45 – 10:00   Welcome and Opening Remarks - Recording

10:00-12:35    Session I: EWD for Microelectronics Manufacturing and Packaging

Session I will focus on best practices and innovative approaches for education/training programs and initiatives for microelectronics manufacturing and packaging.  Topics will include novel technician (2-yr), engineering (4-yr), and graduate/postdoctoral microelectronics education/training content and delivery, unique incumbent worker training programs, new modalities for semiconductor EWD content creation and delivery and student/trainee engagement, novel and impactful experiential learning programs (hands-on subjects/co-ops/internships/apprenticeships), innovative microelectronic career engagement activities for K-12 and undergraduate students. and highly effective regional or national collaboration models for microelectronics EWD.

10:00-10:25: NSF Mission and Program Impact for Technician Education to Support U.S. Semiconductor ManufacturingCeleste Carter PhD., Advanced Technological Education Program Director, Division of Undergraduate Education, National Science Foundation - Recording

Panel Members: 

  • Clay Nagel, Senior Manager and Deputy Director for Technical Training, GlobalFoundries
  • Nadia El-Masry, Program Director, Engineering Research Centers (ERC) Program Division of Engineering Education and Centers
  • Mike Russo, President & CEO, National Institute for Innovation and Technology
  • Jared Ashcroft, Pasadena College Principal Investigator NSF Micro/Nanotechnology Education Center

12:35-12:45     Break

12:45-2:50      Session II: EWD for Integrated Circuit and Heterogeneous Integration System Design

Session II will focus on best practices and innovative approaches for education/training programs and initiatives for IC and heterogeneous integration (“chiplet”) system design.  Topics will focus on education and training programs for IC design, prototyping and testing, especially in areas related to novel on-chip technologies. As in Session 1 contributions are invited that focus on impactful experiential learning methodologies, and highly effective regional or national collaboration models.
