IPC COMMUNITY 48 SPRING 2023 Carol Handwerker: Standards at Her Core W e often hear words and phrases that naturally go together: Salt and pep- per, touch and go, trace and space. When it comes to the work of IPC member Carol Handwerker, however, the collocations are much more nuanced, deeper, and have greater significance. You're more likely to think of phrases such as standards and technology, lead-free and solder, or advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration. These are just some examples of Carol's lifelong work in materials engineering, involvement with governing bodies, and a forward-thinking approach to electronics manufacturing that has spanned more than three decades. Her latest participation is an appointment to the Industrial Advisory Committee, an extension of the National Institute of Stan- dards and Technology (NIST), where she joins 23 other members in advising the U.S. Depart- ment of Commerce on the science and tech- nology needs of the nation's domestic micro- electronics industry. Carol currently serves as the Reinhardt Schuhmann Jr. Professor of Materials Engi- neering, Environmental and Ecological Engi- neering at Purdue University. She formerly worked at NIST, where she became chief of the Metallurgy Division. She is well-known for her research on determining the best options for ADVOCACY By Michelle Te Image credit: Purdue University
