In fact, careers in the electronics industry can pro- vide a sizable salary, but exactly how much will you make? A new resource from the IPC Education Foundation breaks down the most common career paths in electronics manufacturing, from operators to owners. What jobs are available? What does someone in the electronics industry even do? The work on sustainability in electronics at IPC continues and a new leadership council is one result of those efforts. In March 2023, IPC convened a Sustainability for Electron- ics Leadership Council to offer peer review and direction to IPC. The coun- cil is a response to the industry's requests for more attention on environmental, social, and corporate sustainability in IPC's industry standards, education, and advocacy.

What does digital twin mean when the product your manufac- ture is an eight- or nine-figure combat aircraft packed full of electronics?
