Altium LLC Announces Partnership With Chandigarh University to Join Upverter Education Program

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.

Technology has always invoked radical changes, but unlike today, there used to be one major revolutionizing technology trend at a time. The world is becoming increasingly connected, more automated and more intelligent, driven by generational drivers—hyperscale computing, 5G, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), industrial IoT (IIoT), and autonomous vehicles—which are invoking disruptive technological forces on vertical markets, unfolding varied levels of microelectronics and digital transformation across the globe. The increasing demand for miniaturization and higher speed is changing the dynamics of the semiconductor components needed to store and process data.

Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

The youngsters are back in school, and we’re all back to work. The water is back on for most of us in Atlanta; when temps dropped down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, our pipes started bursting left and right. After a Christmas dinner with no water, I have a new appreciation for H2O. It’s been a busy week, and we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items. In this week’s top five, we have news about the market in Southeast Asia, a look at what the CHIPS Act really entails, a deep dive into CMMC, and a peek at how printed electronics developers are using flexible circuit concepts to facilitate PEC. We also say goodbye to a Top Gun PCB designer who left us way too soon.
