U.S. Pours Money Into Chips, but Even Soaring Spending Has Limits

"Purdue University, which built a new semiconductor laboratory, has set a goal of graduating 1,000 engineers each year..."

The New York Times

"My Purdue University degree laid the foundation for what continues to be a rewarding career. At RTX, we believe Purdue's Semiconductor Degrees Program will provide students interested in joining the microelectronics workforce with the valuable skills and experiences they'll need to achieve their own career goals, while helping strengthen the U.S. economy and national security. Semiconductors are a critical component that enables ground-breaking technology across the aerospace and defense industries. After completion, I can envision program graduates joining the thousand-plus Purdue alums who are already helping RTX create a safer, more connected world."
