Panel Discussion

January 27, 2022 | 12PM PST

The IPC Education Foundation hosted a panel of engineers and business leaders for 60-minutes sponsored by TTM Technologies to engage high school and college students considering a career in the electronics manufacturing industry, ranging from Aviation/Aerospace, Computing Equipment/Devices, Electronics Design, Industrial (Manufacturing), Materials/Chemicals, Medical, Military/Defense, and Semiconductors during the IPC APEX EXPO STEM Outreach Event.



"I feel it was a really nice experience. Because we got to learn about how things are made and we were also able to do the pin build activity which was a nice experience because I learned how to do those things work."


"I loved everything about it. I loved how they met us see how some of the machines work like the oven. I really enjoyed making the track-pin. It was a new experience that was so engaging, interesting and most importantly a memory I will hold for the rest of my life."


"My experience here was engaging. I learned a lot about technology that I knew before. As someone who doesn't really know much about technology, this event made learning about it fun and interactive."
