IPC COMMUNITY 61 FALL 2023 IPC Asia Scholars Program The IPC Asia Scholars Program is part of the larger IPC Asia Talent Development Program, which was established in 2020 and has been committed to cultivating and developing industry professionals. The program not only provides internship opportunities and pro- fessional training for students, it establishes partnerships with multiple companies and institutions to collectively provide a stronger workforce in the industry. To foster this more ambitious and capable workforce, IPC Asia partnered with TTM Tech- nologies in October 2020 to jointly advance the IPC Asia Scholars Program. This program aims to connect top students with the most innovative and influential companies in the electronics industry by providing meaningful and challenging internship opportunities for students. Since its implementation, the IPC Asia Scholars Program has achieved significant results: five sessions with 79 students from more than 10 universities participating. The students came from six regions: Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Huizhou, Zhongshan, Dongguan, and Shanghai. They cover more than 20 majors, including electronics, mechanical engineer- ing, computer science, and chemical engi- neering. Through collaboration with TTM, the stu- dents have gained the opportunity to intern at the most influential companies in the indus- try, enabling them to develop their profes- sional skills and acquire the latest industry knowledge. Richard Xie, Asia Pacific vice president of human resources at TTM, said, "In 2020, we implemented an internship program in coop- eration with IPC. Although it has only been two years, the results have shown it is a successful program. We provide valuable work experi- ence and offer opportunities for outstanding interns to work at TTM. Through the IPC Asia program, we have now established formal internship cooperation relationships with several universities in China. This is a great opportunity for us to collaborate and inspire the future leaders of the electronics industry." IPC Asia Talent Development Program The students participating in the IPC Asia Talent Development Program also expressed their gratitude and affirmation for this project.
