SEMI University Day—Future U: Exploring Careers in Microelectronics

Discover Career and Research Opportunities in the Semiconductor Industry

Semiconductors are the engines that drive the products that we use every day: cell phones, computers, personal electronics and more. Billions are sold each year. Discover the industry that manufactures them. 

University Day is a special program for college students to learn about the world of semiconductor manufacturing. Students will meet with leading-edge companies and people driving the industry forward, and they'll have opportunities to explore careers in the microelectronics industry. Industry thought leaders, technical experts, and workforce development professionals will share insights about this growing field, and how students can contribute to the future of electronics innovation.

Throughout the day, attendees will meet with company representatives from major microelectronics suppliers and manufacturers and preview the latest technology up close, as they tour the exhibition floor.
