Funding from the CHIPS and Science Act is expected to build new semiconductor manufacturing plants, but to staff new fabs, Research Analyst Will Hunt estimates a need for more than 3,000 high-tech workers.
A key provision in the final CHIPS and Science Act that was dropped would have made high-skilled immigration to work in the U.S. easier. A CSET study estimated new semiconductor manufacturing plants may require 3,500 foreign-born high-skilled workers.
CSET Research Fellow Emily Weinstein testified before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission at a hearing on "Challenges from Chinese Policy in 2022: Zero-COVID, Ukraine, and Pacific Diplomacy." Weinstein proposed the creation of a new export control regime.
The Biden administration hopes to turn the U.S. into a hub for microchip manufacturing with help from Intel, but to reshore chip manufacturing, the U.S. needs to attract foreign talent. According to a CSET study, the chip industry would only need around 3,500 foreign-born workers to effectively staff new U.S.-based factories.
In the current cyber-threat environment, a well-educated workforce is critical to U.S. national security. Today, however, nearly six hundred thousand cybersecurity positions remain unfilled across the public and private sectors. This report explores high school cybersecurity competitions as a potential avenue for increasing the domestic cyber talent pipeline. The authors examine the competitions, their reach, and their impact on students’ educational and professional development.
Geopolitical tensions between the United States and China have sparked an ongoing dialogue in Washington about the phenomenon of “decoupling”—the use of public policy tools to separate the multifaceted economic ties that connect the two powers. This issue brief provides a historical lens on the efficacy of one specific aspect of this broader decoupling phenomenon: using export controls and related trade policies to prevent a rival from acquiring the equipment and know-how to catch up to the United States in cutting-edge, strategically important technologies.
