YSU’s Admete Program Introduces Students to Microelectronics

BOARDMAN, Ohio– Youngstown State University’s Admete, or Assured Digital Microelectronics Education and Training Ecosystem, program is introducing students in Boardman High School and Poland Seminary High School to career pathways in the field of microelectronics.

The program is made possible through a $29.75 million grant from the U.S. Air Force awarded to YSU and five other educational institutions in northeastern Ohio. Admete coordinator Shawntae Burton says the goal is to ensure enough students enter the pipeline for careers in microelectronics by getting them interested while in high school.

“Microelectronics is the small building blocks of technology that we use to create things like our cell phones, to create this like the microchips that we need to operate our vehicles,” Burton says, “But more specifically what we’re interested in is getting students interested in this work so that we can have enough qualified applicants to do the work for the department of defense to keep our country safe.”
