School of Microelectronics of Xidian University, was set up in 2004 which is one of the National Instruction Bases for Integrated Circuit Talents approved by the Ministry of Education of China, has been hosting a Student Summer Training Camp for 5 years now, with Cadence participation in the last 3 years. The summer training is a 4-week program, where students get an in-depth understanding about IC and the EDA industry and learn about solving engineering problems.
In 2019, over 300 students from 64 universities applied to participate and 113 students were selected. Of all those students, 21 received recognition for their outstanding work throughout the training.
Cadence’s role in the Student Summer Training Camp was to host a 5-day training, where over 100 students were participating. A Sr Principal Product Engineer, a Principal Product Engineer and a Product Validation Director, all from the Digital & Signoff Group (DSG), were the hosts of the training. They focused on teaching the students about our digital tools, specifically Genus Synthesis Solution and Tempus Timing Signoff Solution.
I also had an opportunity to speak with the students about what Cadence online offered to them through the University Program and the open opportunities to pursue a career at Cadence.
Participating in the student training has been very beneficial to Cadence. Not only do we get the chance to train the next generation of engineers, but we also can recruit top talent from these universities to start innovating at Cadence!
We look forward to many more years of partnering with Xidian University.
