NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that the South African Durban University of Technology (DUT) has adopted NI AWR Design Environment™ for its RF design course. Expecting a steep learning curve and a semester-long migration period, Prof. Stuart MacPherson was pleasantly surprised with the software's ease of use and support, enabling him to completely transition to the new tool even before the semester began.
"Implementing NI AWR software in the DUT RF design curriculum has resulted in the academic level of the course being advanced and the pass rate being improved," said Prof. MacPherson, associate director at DUT. “This is a win-win situation that is not often encountered in an academic environment! It has been a pleasure interacting with our sales representative and we are looking forward to many more years in the University Program.”
