Comprehensive Semiconductors and Microelectronics Program

Economic Future of U.S. Depends on Making Engineering Cool

"By rapidly expanding chip education, Purdue is aiming to graduate 1,000 semiconductor engineers annually as soon as possible. [...] Purdue is rolling out new courses and labs for UGs, a new master's program and a push to place students in chip internships..."

The Washington Post

"Semiconductor manufacturing requires a vast array of highly engineered and advanced materials and chemistries. CMC Materials and other leading materials companies look forward to supporting the expansion of semiconductors in the United States and globally. For the bold innovation in critical materials that is needed to advance technology and increase performance, a new generation of semiconductor engineers is critically needed. Purdue's new degrees and credentials will help students develop the depth and breadth needed for an exciting new era of technology that is just beginning. Kudos to Purdue for stepping up to address this key challenge for the U.S. semiconductor industry. Go Boilers!"
