imec USA

Nanoelectronics design center for photonics and high-speed electronics

We're hiring!

One of imec's strongest markets is the United States, and in today’s hyper-globalized markets, being embedded locally is a great asset for our partners. When imec learned of Osceola County, Florida's eagerness to create economic diversity through the  creation of high tech jobs, it reminded us of our journey.

Osceola County is one of the fastest growing areas in the US, and part of a 23-county region innovation region known as Florida's High Tech Corridor. The Corridor is connected by three major  research universities, which means there are over 500,000 higher education students within a 100-mile radius of imec. Known for its aerospace innovation and steady growth in modeling and simulation, optics and photonics, digital media and medical technologies, the Corridor reported more than 1,000 new technology-focused companies in 2017 alone. 

With an enormous drive by our Florida-based partners to make this effort a success, imec established its first US-based R&D center in the lush heart of Central Florida - about 30 kilometers south of Orlando.
