Reading time ( words)

Altium LLC is announcing that Upverter Education, Altium’s free browser-based electronics engineering essential courses, will now be an integral addition to the curriculum for printed circuit board (PCB) design in the Department of Electronics and Communications at Chandigarh University in Mohali, India. The Upverter Education courses guide students through the elements of design, prototyping, and the manufacturing of electronic engineering from basic to advanced levels.

The Upverter Education program’s collaborative and remote capabilities make it an excellent learning resource to enrich the experience of STEM educators and students engaged in the study of electronic design and engineering technology. The focus on modular board style encourages students to quickly develop their understanding while easily performing elementary concepts in virtual, hybrid, and in-class scenarios. The modular layout plan also delves deeper into electronic design practices, permitting learners to work with a drag-and-fall interface into the development of hardware design patterns.

“We are delighted to have forged a partnership with Chandigarh University, a leading academic institution based in India to provide Upverter Education’s award-winning courses in printed circuit board design along with Altium's professional PCB design tools,” said Rea Callender, Vice President of Altium Education. “A collaboration such as this furthers our goal in supporting the next generation of electronics designers.” 

The Department of Electronics and Communications at Chandigarh University will launch the Upverter Education Program as a six-week course during summer and winter breaks.

The Department of Electronics and Communications will hold a ceremony on December 16, 2021, to formalize the partnership between the University and Upverter Education.

Upverter Education partners with universities around the world to help usher in the next generation of electronics designers not only with the objective to support their educational goals but to also create dynamic innovators who contribute to the future and development of electrical engineering.

Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
