Konrad Young

Graduating from the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Taiwan University,  Dr. Konrad Young obtained his doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley. When in the United States, he served as a researcher at the Lincoln Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and as a senior technologist at HP. After leaving the United States, he successively worked at Chartered Semiconductor, Winbond Electronics, and Worldwide Semiconductor. 

From 1998 to 2005, he served as the R&D Director at TSMC, responsible for developing advanced processes at 0.18-micron, 0.13-micron, and 65-nanometer. In 2005, he went to the United States to oversee TSMC’s research and development program and advanced technology customer collaboration projects. In 2012, he transferred to TSMC’s Basic Engineering Department and the Office of Advanced Technology Management.

In 2001, TSMC began mass production of the 0.13-micron process, laying the foundation for TSMC’s later significant lead over its competitors. Several key figures involved in the development efforts were later hailed as the “Six Knights of TSMC’s R&D,” with Dr. Young being one of them responsible for integrating the overall logic process.

After retiring from TSMC, Dr. Young served as an independent SMIC director and technical advisor to Intel. He is currently an adjunct professor in the Leadership Program at National Taiwan University and is deeply passionate about talent development issues.
