Equipping for employment with Keysight Technologies
30 August 2016
Cardiff University’s School of Engineering is to collaborate with Keysight Technologies to increase the range of hardware utilised by students and prepare them for a career in industry.
US-based Keysight will provide students full access to industry-leading software tools such as Advanced Design System (ADS), SystemVue, EMPro, Genesys, IC-CAP, and GoldenGate.
This extended collaboration is a result of the Keysight EDA University Educational Support Program.
Professor Sam Evans, Director of the School of Engineering, said that the institution “really values” such innovative industrial partnerships.
“The Keysight RF/MW Student Certification Program provides the practical tools which will help our students to overcome the challenges they will meet as engineering graduates in electrical and electronic engineering.
“Together we are providing a practical engineering education which gives our students the best possible preparation for future careers in industry.”
However, the collaboration is not limited to the installment of cutting edge technology – with Keysight Technologies also set to provide curriculum material, on-site training and access to professional technology events.
Not only this, but students demonstrating excellence in RF/MW (radio frequency and microwave filter) design and measurement could be acknowledged and rewarded under the company's Certification Program.
“We are proud to partner with Cardiff University to help research engineers and students acquire the skills they need to positively impact industry and advance quickly in their careers,” said Todd Cutler, vice president and general manager of Keysight EDA.
“Our software donation is given as an acknowledgement of the strong level of cooperation and commitment between Keysight and Cardiff University.”
