PARIS Australian design tool provider Altium Ltd. said masters students at the Institute of Process Automation and Embedded Systems at Leipzig University of Applied Sciences for Technology, Economics and Culture, Germany, are using Altium Designer as part of their “Embedded Systems” module to improve their skills in circuit design, analysis and testing.
Altium specified that practical applications include the drafting of circuit diagrams and the simulation of circuits, as well as the analysis and verification of completed circuit boards and appliances.
"Tomorrow's European engineers will face new competitors from around the world. They need to experience a next generation design tool that opens their minds to new possibilities and new opportunities, early in their careers," stated Martin Harris, Altium’s vice president EMEA.
Altium has sealed similar agreements with the University of Wisconsin's College of Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Toronto, Aachen University and Tokyo Institute of Technology.
In total, more than 900 universities use Altium's software tools.
