Programs Provide Students with Tools to Become Industry-Ready Engineers

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2015 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that more than 200 universities in North America are now participating in the Keysight EEsof EDA University Educational Support Programs, which provide several thousand students with EDA software licenses. As a result, more students than ever are returning to school this fall with the tools necessary to become industry-ready engineers.

The Keysight EDA University Programs offer full versions of Keysight EDA software to qualified academic institutions for instructional use. This software is used in industry and creates a full wireless communication EDA experience that helps students develop skills that will serve them well throughout their careers.

"Students love being able to access a student license download," said Kathleen Melde, professor at the University of Arizona. "The process is so easy and there's 24/7 access, so I often joke about how students can use the Keysight EDA tools to fix problems that bug them in the middle of the night. More importantly though, the student license is allowing our students to master the use of industry-standard tools and that's what's going to make them stand out in a competitive job market."

The Keysight RF & Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certification program is a collaboration between Keysight, select universities and industry. The program identifies, acknowledges and rewards top students with certification for demonstrating excellence in RF and microwave design and measurement expertise using Keysight EDA software design tools and instruments. Certification requirements include:

  • Excellence in RF and microwave design courses and labs
  • Completion of the required hours of Keysight EDA design tool use
  • Completion of the required use of Keysight instruments, while learning key fundamentals for accurate RF calibration and measurement
  • Nomination by a university professor for certification

To date, 200 students at more than 40 participating universities have been certified as Keysight Industry-Ready Students and therefore have demonstrated immediate value to prospective employers. Participation in the certification program confirms a university’s interest in preparing students for their future industry contribution.

Since the launch of the Keysight EDA Student License program in 2013, thousands of students have gained access to Keysight EDA software tools, anyplace, anytime, on their personal computers. Having access to Keysight EDA software enables professors to encourage student creativity and empowers students to capture and present that creativity in a form that’s recognized and trusted in conference papers, presentations and proposals.

"The Keysight EDA university program, along with other associated programs, such as the Keysight RF & Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certification and Keysight EDA Student License, provide an environment whereby students can master invaluable RF and microwave design skills," said John Kikuchi, university program manager with Keysight EDA. "These skills will enable participating students to deliver faster, higher-level results to their future employers."
