The Department of Electronics and Information Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Fukuoka University will launch the ``Semiconductor Engineering Education Program,'' the department's unique certification system. This was in response to a call for accelerated human resource development from the Kyushu Semiconductor Human Resources Development Consortium, an industry-academia-government organization in response to a nationwide shortage of semiconductor human resources. We aim to certify a limited number of students and begin full-scale implementation starting with students enrolled in 2023.

 According to Fukuoka University, semiconductor-related classes will be offered to first- through fourth-year students, and an intensive lecture-type internship course will be created for third-year students. In addition, we are planning a ``Technology Management Special Lecture'', ``Information Industry Theory'', and a ``TSMC Lecture'' featuring engineers working in companies as lecturers.

 In order to be able to use the program for job hunting, in addition to issuing a certificate of prospective certification at the end of the third year, we also provide practical training such as semiconductor manufacturing training in a clean room and post-process mounting training at a semiconductor packaging laboratory. Also applied.

 Semiconductors used to be Japan's star industry, but the industry has fallen into a slump after losing out to competition from Taiwan, China, South Korea, and other countries. While many of the world's most advanced Taiwanese companies are expanding into Japan, conflicts between Western countries and China have led to calls for increased semiconductor production in developed countries. As a result, the shortage of human resources is becoming more serious.

 In Kyushu, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TSMC), the largest contract manufacturer of semiconductors, has built a factory in Kikuyo Town, Kumamoto Prefecture, and the economy is expected to improve rapidly, but there is a shortage of semiconductor talent and competition for science talent is raging. There is.
