Intel Awards First-Phase Funding to Boost Ohio’s Semiconductor Workforce

Several Ohio colleges and universities are receiving grant awards as part of Intel’s first phase of funding for the company’s Ohio Semiconductor Education and Research Program. Intel expects this first iteration of the program will produce nearly 9,000 graduates for the industry.

The $17.7 million in awards are part of Intel’s 10-year, $50 million investment to prepare more workers for the semiconductor industry.

As an example of how the grants will be put to use, Lorain County Community College will lead a collaboration of 10 Ohio TechNet colleges and universities across the region to develop curriculum, faculty training, and experiential learning programs in semiconductor processing and industrial automation manufacturing, reports say. 9/12/2022
