Agilent Technologies Inc. announced its sponsorship of the electrical engineering undergraduate teaching lab at Santa Clara University (SCU) in Silicon Valley. The lab is designed to give students access to the most current electronic test equipment used in the industry.

The SCU lab uses Agilent oscilloscopes, power supplies, multimeters and function generators. The lab affirms SCU's commitment to work with Silicon Valley companies, such as Agilent, to deliver an advanced engineering laboratory environment for the undergraduate program. The SCU electrical engineering undergraduate teaching lab recognized Agilent at an on-site dedication ceremony on Wednesday, January 20.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of our work with Agilent and hope that it will be an incentive to other innovative technology companies to partner with us," said Cary Yang, Professor and Chair of the electrical engineering department. "Santa Clara University is very focused at delivering real-life challenges with academic achievement. This lab gives our students an excellent and competitive engineering instructional environment in which to learn and grow."

"Agilent is dedicated to making available the latest tools and instructional material so the next generation of engineers can successfully compete in the global market," said Bill Wallace, Agilent's Americas Education Business Development Manager. "We are already in discussions with SCU about other exciting possibilities for their program."
