Cadence and the National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET) today announced the 10th anniversary of a graduate program in analogue and mixed-signal design for Russian engineering graduate students seeking a master's degree in electrical engineering.
MIET has many years of experience developing educational and research programs in design and the development of IC components as well as in training highly-qualified specialists. To support the master’s program, MIET founded the Device and System Design Institute, which is comprised of 24 specialized courses and labs. A fully-licensed Cadence software package was installed for end-to-end design of VLSI devices. Students are taught by MIET lecturers as well as by industry specialists from leading companies involved in integrated microelectronic circuit design.
Cadence also supports the Institute by providing professors ongoing curriculum development, technology and methodology training. Since the program began, 230 graduates have obtained their master’s diploma and Cadence certificates. The number of students attending the program continues to grow.
“We are extremely satisfied with the success of the graduate program. It not only benefits the reputation of MIET and its graduates, but it has also become a resource for the high-tech industry and community in Russia to access a pool of highly-educated analogue/mixed-signal specialists,” said Patrick Haspel, senior program manager for Strategic Academic Partnerships at Cadence.
DSD Institute Director, Professor M.G. Putrya, Doctor of Technical Sciences, goes on to add, “Together with Cadence, we created an ideal program for Russian engineers to obtain a master’s degree. Working closely with the IC industry to understand their specific demands, allows us to educate the students so effectively that they can start working for companies immediately without needing additional training. The percentage of graduates that move into employment after their studies is nearly 100 percent making this one of the most successful programs at our institute.”
MIET is a member and active contributor to the Cadence Academic Network.
