Three PSU students joined the nation’s top semiconductor scholars and industry leaders to share their research at the Semiconductor Research Corporation’s (SRC) 17th annual TECHCON conference. The conference, held Sept. 20-22 in Austin, Texas, showcased the forefront of semiconductor research and recognized professional and university participants for their contributions to the industry.
tlab student Jeff Udall was among the 250 undergraduate and graduate students invited from top-flight universities across the country to present their research at the conference. The students from SRC’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities program provides hands-on research and mentorship to attract students to semiconductor industry careers. Their attendance was made possible through the support of Intel Foundation, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, STARnet and SRC Education Alliance.
The papers selected for presentation at TECHCON represent a summary of the best research in SRC’s portfolio across all of the organization’s research programs. To be invited, students submitted an abstract of a research project for review by an SRC-coordinated committee, which selected projects based on rigorous and competitive criteria.
TECHCON brings university students from a variety of science and engineering majors together with scholars and leaders from the semiconductor industry to explore cutting-edge silicon-based research and network with other students and professionals. Altogether, more than 455 attendees participated in the 2015 conference.
