Thought Leadership

-       Over the next five years, more electronic circuits will be integrated into a single chip, leading to smaller and cheaper electronic and computer devices. 

-       Further advancement in nanotechnology will increase the effectiveness and range of capabilities of electronic devices, while further decreasing size and mass.

-       Regardless of the exact evolutionary pattern that technology takes, the field is quickly and frequently changing and will require not only future practitioners to become more advanced, but those tasked with teaching must also continue to stay current in order to educate effectively.
