There is always a need for verification engineers in the microelectronics industry. The costs of verification have long ago surpassed the costs of implementation, but still the focus in academia is on implementation and not too many universities offer verification lectures.
So how can one increase their chances of becoming a verification engineer? Cadence is playing a valuable in helping future engineers achieve their goal of working in verification by collaborating with several universities worldwide; Cadence and the Academic Network are able to provide academic licenses for verification tools, share educational material, and organize verification workshops. There is a new jigsaw piece available to complete the picture: Cadence Digital Badging.
Digital Badges allow students and professors to become Cadence certified in verification as well as in other Cadence tools and technologies. They can be earned by passing a certification exam on a certain Cadence technology. The Digital Badge can then be shared on their email signature or across social media platforms, like LinkedIn to prove their knowledge of Cadence tools.
The following verification Digital Badges are available:
Enrollment in the exam is very similar as enrollment in an iLS course. Please contact either your academic distributor e.g. Europractice or Cadence Academic Network at firstname.lastname@example.org.
