UNIVERSITY RESEARCH PLAYS A KEY ROLE
As an internationally recognized leader in semiconductor research and development, and as a national leader in education and development of the semiconductor workforce, Penn State University is deeply committed to promote a robust national semiconductor industry.
Driven by the large diversification of the global semiconductor markets, the future generations of semiconductor devices demand a remarkably broad portfolio of materials and structures, novel multipurpose fabrication and metrology tools, sophisticated packaging solutions, and unique paradigms in education to effectively transition university research to commercialization.
As an internationally recognized leader in semiconductor research and development, and as a national leader in the education and development of the semiconductor workforce, Penn State University is deeply committed to promoting a robust national semiconductor industry. Our campus is at the epicenter of booming research and development activities linked to the advancement of semiconductor materials and devices, packaging, optics, thermal management, quantum devices, and computation. Penn State leads several nationally funded research centers where interdisciplinary teams drive innovation by addressing specific semiconductor challenges. We are part of The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which, thanks to its long industrial tradition and its many world-class universities involved with the manufacturing of semiconductors, is the perfect ecosystem for revitalizing the U.S. semiconductor industry.
