As the world’s largest contract chipmaker, Taiwan Semiconductor  aims to address the talent shortage in the semiconductor industry by dispatching its personnel to serve as instructors at Kyushu University’s Education Center for Semiconductors and Value Creation. This collaboration is expected to bolster the educational landscape and cultivate skilled professionals in the field. Additionally, the partnership will explore opportunities for joint research endeavors, as outlined in the forthcoming memorandum of understanding.

Taiwan Semiconductor Kumamoto plant, situated on the southwestern island of Kyushu, commenced operations in February. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has approved plans for a second facility in Kumamoto, contingent upon TSMC’s commitment to providing a semiconductor-focused curriculum at Kyushu University.

Kyushu University has been actively engaged in forging partnerships to address the region’s projected shortage of semiconductor-related personnel, estimated at 1,000 annually over the next decade. In September, the university inked memorandums of understanding with Taiwan’s National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University and Industrial Technology Research Institute, both of which were instrumental in TSMC’s establishment.

To meet the growing demand for semiconductor expertise, Kyushu University has introduced a data science curriculum with a semiconductor device concentration within its engineering department, signaling its commitment to nurturing talent and advancing innovation in the semiconductor sector.
