As we wrap up 2016, it is an ideal time to reflect on the accomplishments of Applied teams around the world who have demonstrated a commitment to the company’s core value of operating with responsibility and integrity.
While the mainstay applications of the MEMS segment continue to be strong performers, 2016 saw a big push toward lots of new and potentially high-volume MEMS devices. This presents many exciting opportunities, but the challenges are plenty.
Applied Materials hosted an Open Innovation Workshop in Shanghai where company experts joined industry and academic leaders to explore how materials engineering can help transform sectors of the global economy.
As a company built by innovators, Applied Materials understands the importance of investing in the entire education pathway, from reading and writing to math and science and from teacher professional development to project-based learning. The company's Education Initiative focuses on key inflection points in a student’s academic trajectory: entering kindergarten ready to learn and succeed, performing at grade level in English language arts and mathematics in early elementary school, staying on academic track in middle school, and pursuing a college-preparatory curriculum in high school.
