Connecting the World is STEM, Brought to you by Intel
In this ebook we take a look at the many ways microtechnology connects the world and how selected companies are leading in innovation and career pathways.
Tiny items with massive influence, semiconductor chips are at the center of our digital world. Smart phones, video game consoles, computers, automobiles, appliances are just a few of the everyday items powered by microtechnology. Any device or product that features electronic displays, or needs to process data, needs chips.
Advances in technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, cloud computing, autonomous vehicles and smartphones will rely on the power, stability and growth of the global semiconductor industry. It’s no surprise the global semiconductor industry is forecasted to grow from $450 billion in 2021 to over $800 billion by 2028. In 2020, there were about 277,000 jobs in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
Some of the largest chip producers based in the United States include Intel, Micron, Applied Materials, Broadcom, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments. Employment opportunities abound in this industry poised for massive growth. From technical roles requiring hands-on training to engineering roles requiring 4 or more years of college, there are many pathways to a career in microchips and semiconductors.
From the microchip to the metaverse, we hope this book inspires you to jump into the future with a career in advanced semiconductor manufacturing and microtechnology.
