Let me talk to you today: Ren Zhengfei’s trip to Fudan has a unique insight. In the face of the talent gap of 300000 integrated circuits, relevant departments have also responded positively. Integrated circuits have also been upgraded to a first-class discipline. Can such an approach solve the dilemma of Huawei and even China’s semiconductor industry?
on July 30, the proposal to change integrated circuit into a first-class discipline was officially approved. This proposal was put forward as early as 2018, but it could not be formally implemented for various reasons. However, the construction of the first level discipline of integrated circuit in Fudan University has already started at that time, and the discipline has officially begun to recruit new students in 2020, “integrated circuit discipline” “Learning and Engineering” became the first pilot university after the first level discipline.
according to relevant data, at present, the talent gap in the integrated circuit industry has reached about 720000, and the talent reserve in this field can only reach 400000, and the gap is as high as 300000. As a high-tech enterprise that attaches importance to talents, Huawei takes the lead in realizing the seriousness of the problem and wants to launch a talent training plan with colleges and universities. Ren Zhengfei visited Fudan University, Jiaotong University and other universities in Shanghai with several senior executives of Huawei. After seeing that Fudan University is willing to take the lead in launching the pilot project of integrated circuit discipline, he himself expressed great satisfaction that there are still people willing to learn such an unpopular subject. Of course, if you can learn something, Huawei will be able to give the treatment is not bad.
the purpose of Huawei’s visit to colleges and universities has not been clearly disclosed, but after seeing that he Tingbo is among the people accompanying us, we can roughly guess the intention. He Tingbo is the first female chip leader in China. Obviously, Huawei’s purpose of this visit is for the semiconductor chip field.
some of Huawei’s top executives are Yu Chengdong and Ren Zhengfei. You may be relatively unfamiliar with the name he Tingbo. She is one of the main directors of Huawei’s Hisilicon chips. She is a low-key person who has devoted her life to Huawei. During the past few decades, he Tingbo has led Hisense and has never been visited The small chip factory has developed into the largest semiconductor company in China, and even surpassed arm company in market share, making it one of the top five chip design companies in the world.
why few people hear about such a powerful woman? In fact, from what Ren Zhengfei said before, “Ren Zhengfei said that the Hisilicon team is the hero behind the scenes, and researchers must stay in the research room. In the face of such a high security R & D project, they should not spread any news in the society.” It is true that Huawei’s Hisilicon team has done it. To everyone, Huawei’s team is full of mystery, so the photos of he Tingbo we see on the Internet are generally fake.
and the story between Ren Zhengfei and he Tingbo should be told from the research and development funds of Hisilicon. At that time, the number of employees of Huawei was only about 30000, and the R & D funds were only $1 billion. However, Ren Zhengfei vowed to tell he Tingbo: “20000 people will be allocated to you, and 400 million US dollars of R & D funds will be provided to you. We must make some achievements 。” In the face of such high-intensity investment, he Tingbo has not let Huawei down. Hisilicon has become a mysterious and unpredictable existence in the world.
in recent years, China has gradually attached importance to the semiconductor field, increased its investment, and made some achievements. However, compared with the European and American countries, there are still great differences. The main reason is that we do not have top talents in integrated circuits. Previous blindly imitation also makes us have certain disadvantages in the ability of continuous innovation, and we have to solve the problem We need to introduce a large number of talents.
at present, the problem to be solved in China is brain drain. According to relevant data, in 2019 alone, more than 15.3% of graduates from Tsinghua University went abroad for further study, while that of Peking University reached 30.01%. After studying abroad, these talents basically stayed abroad to engage in research and development. However, we have to admit that the scientific research atmosphere and treatment of talents in the United States are the best in the world, which also leads to a large number of researchers staying in the United States. Properly improving the treatment of scientific research personnel can also improve the brain drain rate. Huawei has done a very good job in this regard.
according to relevant statistics, at present, there is not enough attention paid to talents in the field of chips. In terms of the most basic wages, the average salary of chip talents with 10 years’ work experience is only about 20000, while those who do software exceed this number. With this difference, it will naturally lead to partial majors when choosing majors, which also limits the development of chips One of the main reasons. Scientific research is a complex process. We should not only focus on the immediate interests, but also give the Chinese scientific research team enough time, and they will certainly give us a miracle.
