SEMI Programs To Attract, Retain and Re-Skill Talent

SEMI works to ensure the sustained growth of the microelectronics industry by attracting, developing and retaining a well-trained and innovative workforce through educational programs, diversity initiatives, member engagement and skills and course certification programs.  

We offer science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professional skill development programs for middle school, high school and university students.  We also focus on programs for educators, veterans and other adults looking at re-skiling and up-skilling themselves, or to act as conduits to communities looking for opportunities.

As the global microelectronics manufacturing and design industry trade association, we invite all of our corporate members to engage on these programs and events.
