Electronics Industry Day 2019
Exploring New Possibilities in Electronics
The electronics sector is entering an exciting period with the rise of new applications such as autonomous vehicles, wearables and advanced mobile technologies that come with the advent of IoT and Industry 4.0. While such smart transformations spell exciting opportunities for the sector, it is also creating demand for new job roles and skillsets.
The inaugural Electronics Industry Day organised by JTC on 1 November 2019 aims to engage our young talents early and ready them for the future demands of the industry. The event includes visits by students from Polytechnics, ITEs and universities to companies within Tampines and Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Parks – Siltronic, SSMC, Soitec, UMC, Jabil and AMS, where they will be given an opportunity to have a real look at the workings of the electronics sector, and have a better understanding of careers in the field.
The event will also see 20 companies from the electronics industry showcasing their innovations and technologies that will offer students a look at real-life applications. This will go towards increasing students’ knowledge and interest in the electronics sector. The event will also showcase projects completed by the Polytechnic students. By bringing and academia partners together, it will help businesses meet their current and future skill needs, and build a talent pipeline for the industry in the long run.
The event will also feature activities such as drone challenges, autonomous vehicle rides, and IMDA Lab On Wheels, where visitors can hop on to these thematic buses to learn about Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Media through engaging hands-on exhibits.
