To stay technically and globally competitive, companies must invest in human capital to a degree greater than ever before. To address these challenges, companies are asking colleges and universities to assist in creating innovative programs that can train or retrain today's students to become the technician-level engineers of tomorrow. An example of how this approach is being applied can be found in a consortium of high technology companies called SEMATECH. In 1998, SEMATECH estimated that within the next five years 40,000 jobs in electronics would be needed in the United States.
