Celebrating NYCU’s 60 Years of Semiconductor Education: Senior Leaders of Taiwan’s Semiconductor Industry Convene to Explore Future Development Path

This year marks the 60th anniversary of establishing the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering (DEE) and the Department of Electrophysics at National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU). We organized the 2024 Semiconductor Summit Forum and a 60th Anniversary Special Exhibition to commemorate this milestone.

In addition to showcasing the outstanding achievements of numerous distinguished alumni in the field of semiconductors, these forum and exhibition activities also provide an opportunity to envision the university's future vision in semiconductor talent cultivation and industry-academic collaboration.

The 2024 Semiconductor Summit Forum on April 10th convened and collaborated with five senior alumni in the semiconductor technology sector, focusing on discussing crucial issues such as the "key to sustainable competitiveness" and "strategies for talent cultivation and retention" in Taiwan's semiconductor industry.

President Chi-Hung Lin stated that the first transistor in Taiwan was born at NYCU. With the semiconductor industry facing a severe talent shortage, the importance of talent cultivation in universities becomes even more apparent. The forum aims to leverage the foresight of these outstanding alumni to discuss industry trends and challenges, allowing Taiwan's semiconductor industry to continue advancing.

The Advantages of Taiwan in the Global Semiconductor Industry

When discussing the key factors behind Taiwan's past success in the semiconductor industry, all five panelists unanimously pointed to Taiwan's unique ecosystem and culture.
