In order to better prepare engineering students to enter the workforce armed with cutting-edge RF/microwave design skills and also to spearhead advanced university research, NI AWR Design Environment has been donated to Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI" (ETU), one of the oldest higher education institutions in Saint Petersburg, Russia and a leader in the study of RF/microwave engineering and telecommunications.
This donation and cooperation between NI and ETU will enable ETU engineering students and professors to leverage the full suite of circuit and system design tools, as well as electromagnetic (EM) simulation, within NI AWR software.
As part of the cooperative effort, complete licenses of NI AWR software, as well as technical support, student training and workshops and access to an extensive library of technical materials will be provided to ETU students and professors, who will in turn use the software to hone design skills and conduct research and development on innovative new RF/microwave communications technologies. Select results will be shared in NI AWR Design Environment supported events and publications.
“We are pleased to be working with the prestigious ETU University to bring our industry-leading RF/microwave design software to the classroom to help these engineering students prepare for real-world design jobs and research new and innovative technologies and products,” said Tabish Khan, sales director at NI, AWR Group for Southern Europe, the Middle East and India. “We are looking forward to seeing what new and exciting projects ETU students can develop using our tools.”
