Commerce Secy. Raimondo talks to CHIPS leaders

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo joined Purdue President Mung Chiang and Senator Todd Young (R-IN) for a vital conversation about the future of U.S. competitiveness in microelectronics and the semiconductor workforce.

Secretary Raimondo highlighted the importance of the #CHIPSAct workforce development and R&D programs, stating, “The forecasts are that we will be about 100,000 semiconductor technicians short in the next handful of years if we don’t do something differently. That’s a huge problem. It’s also an opportunity.”

Her visit to Purdue left a profound impression: “I should say that I was blown away by what I saw when I visited Purdue. My assessment is it’s exactly what the United States needs to be doing.”
