In addition, to support Singapore’s focus in expanding the talent pool in IC design, the Singapore Economic Development Board and the Nanyang Technological University launched VIRTUS, a S$50 million jointly-funded IC Design Centre of Excellence.

Singapore is positioning itself to capture market demand for specialty ICs such as those used in power, communications and sensor technologies, which will find their way into automotive, mobile and IoT applications. Hence, the semiconductor industry expects to have an increase in the number of positions in IC Design and IC Design Product & Test Engineering in Singapore’s base of semiconductor companies.
