International Engineering Consortium, Semiconductor Research Corporation Form a Strategic Relationship.

CHICAGO -- The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) and Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) have begun a strategic relationship designed to leverage the strengths of both groups as catalysts of positive change in industry and education.

The IEC, which is based in Chicago, and SRC of Research Triangle Park, N.C., will begin discussions they hope will develop into cooperative programs to benefit the industries and academic fields served by the organizations.

"The IEC is very pleased to formalize its relationship with SRC," IEC Executive Director Robert M. Janowiak said. "Combining our efforts should create exciting opportunities to provide for the enrichment of the professionals and students served by both organizations. We are looking forward to working with SRC to produce new opportunities for the engineers, students, and professionals who rely on us."

"Semiconductor Research Corporation is looking forward to working with the International Engineering Consortium," SRC President Larry Sumney said. "Both SRC and IEC have a strong focus on strengthening university programs in electronic technologies on behalf of their respective industrial participants, and we believe that our approaches complement one another and offer excellent opportunities for synergy."

The IEC ( was created in Chicago in 1944 with a charter to continue the progress in electronics that was spurred during World War II. Since then, the IEC has grown into a leading worldwide producer of educational conferences in the telecom and semiconductor industries.

Those conferences include DesignCon, one of the largest annual electronic design automation conferences held in Silicon Valley, as well as DesignCon East, to be held Sept. 19-21, 2005, in the Boston area, and Euro DesignCon, to be held Oct. 24-27, 2005, in Munich, Germany.

In addition to these conferences, the IEC produces research publications. It also serves academia through a variety of programs, including the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) and Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), the electrical and computer engineering honor society. It also offers substantial on-line education, including the GradNet Web site (, which helps engineering students prepare for their professional careers.

SRC ( operates globally to provide competitive advantage to its member companies as the world's premier university research management consortium. SRC's focus is developing relevantly educated technical talent and delivering early research results.

SRC plans and manages a program of basic and applied university research on behalf of its participating members. Currently, SRC sponsors research at universities worldwide. Since its establishment in 1982, SRC has funded more than $500 million in long-term semiconductor research contracts.
