The 2023 Microelectronics Education and Workforce Development (MEWD) Workshop will bring together a small, but important group of government entities (DoD/OUSD, DoC/NIST, etc.), companies (Synopsys, Raytheon, Boeing, Siemens, BAE Systems, and others), national labs (PNNL, Sandia, etc.) and Arizona’s public universities (ASU, NAU, and UofA) to improve the microelectronics R&D and training in the greater Phoenix/Tucson/Flagstaff region.

The workshop seeks to promote the following outcomes:
i. an expanded, more diverse universe of potential microelectronics employees for manufactures in the region and beyond;
ii. a microelectronics workforce that is better trained and up to date on latest developments in the field;
iii. development of a common microelectronics infrastructure;
iv. and increased ability to test and transition new technologies into operational use.
