Higher Educational Initiative in Semiconductors (HIVE), led by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and co-led by Stanford University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT), aims to prepare a diverse, next-generation workforce via experiential learning (online and hands-on) for the US semiconductor industry and microelectronics industry to help maintain its technological leadership. The HIVE is founded in 2023, thanks to Intel’s Broadening Participation in Science and Engineering Higher Education initiative.
