SCALE is a sustainable Microelectronics Public-Private-Academic Partnership that aims to address workforce needs in specialty areas of microelectronics, including radiation-hardened technologies. SCALE is enabled by an academic consortium of nationally recognized universities across radiation-hardened technologies. This partnership aims to implement innovative, design-based engineering education methodology for metric-driven validation. In this talk, I'll discuss what initiatives the SCALE effort is pursuing, and what our initial findings are, as well as some of the future directions that the initiative will take, including how new students can get involved in the program.
