In June 2018, Foxconn partnered with UWM to pilot their first international co-op program in Wisconsin. UWM engineering students will study at the university in Taiwan and work at a Foxconn facility there before returning to UWM to complete their degrees.
According to a news release from UWM officials, the co-op program will introduce engineering students to liquid crystal display fabrication technology and processes. LCD panels are used in a variety of high-tech consumer electronics products, such as smartphones. The co-op program eventually could be expanded to other colleges and universities in Wisconsin and the Midwest.
Additionally, Foxconn has pledged $1 million over the next three years to the “Smart Cities – Smart Futures” competition to generate ideas for game-changing innovative solutions in the fields of sustainable environment, smart mobility, advanced manufacturing, smart homes and smart health. The competition is open to anyone affiliated with a public or private Wisconsin university, technical school or college, and the deadline for first round entries is Oct. 31.
