Change The World - Edition 2025

Emma, a chip designer from the year 2050, meets Max, who works as a chip designer in 2025, by chance. Together and with the help of Saxon companies they design various chips that are needed for a humanoid robot. The robot's task is to compensate the increasing shortage of skilled workers by taking over tasks for which there is a staff shortage.

Many thanks to the following Silicon Saxony member companies who sponsored this video:

15 Saxon companies have produced a recruiting video with Dresden-based Blackfire Medien GmbH to get young people interested in chip design.

We want to get YOU excited about careers in our industries. One important focus is on the field of IC design. For this purpose, we have created a set of slides in which various regional companies introduce themselves. You will also learn about the importance of IC design, our region Saxony and various fields of application. Download the slides and talk to companies that are interesting for you! To the slides
