The semiconductor industry partners with academia in a variety of ways to support the next generation of electrical engineers.
With technology advancing rapidly and the growing number of open R&D projects, there is an expanding need for qualified engineers. To make this possible, practical education needs to start much earlier than after graduation.
One the best ways the EDA and semiconductor industry has embraced is encouraging engineering students to cooperate with experienced engineers, technologists and industry managers. All of the leading EDA providers, along with other significant industry players train and cooperate with students at universities of technology. In fact, many engineers started out this way.
