Cadence Inks Partnership With The Royal University Of Bhutan To Boost VLSI Capabilities

Furthering its commitment to foster the next generation of semiconductor talent, Cadence Design Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of Cadence Design Systems, Inc., has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the College of Science and Technology (CST) at the Royal University of Bhutan. This partnership marks a significant step towards bridging the industry-academic gap by leveraging Cadence’s latest EDA tools to enhance VLSI design capabilities within the college and showcases Cadence’s commitment to providing access to its latest technology tools, even in some of the most remote places in the world.

As a part of this three-year agreement, Cadence will provide research bundle and AWR Design Environment bundle licenses as part of the Cadence University Program to the College of Science and Technology (CST) at the Royal University of Bhutan. This will provide the students and faculty with access to Cadence’s cutting-edge EDA tools, allowing them to delve deeper into the field of VLSI design and facilitating hands-on learning experiences through real-world projects.

The MoU will open new opportunities for internships and placements, enabling students to gain practical industry exposure and refine their skills in preparation for future career endeavors. As a part of this collaboration, Cadence will also provide suggestions on various courses, making it more industry relevant in alignment with the Cadence University Program.

Speaking on the partnership, Jaswinder Ahuja, Corporate VP – International Headquarters and India Managing Director at Cadencesaid, “Through our partnership with the College of Science and Technology at the Royal University of Bhutan, Cadence continues its mission to nurture the semiconductor leaders of tomorrow. By providing access to our cutting-edge EDA technologies, we aim to empower students and faculty to push the boundaries of VLSI design. This collaboration highlights Cadence’s commitment to promoting innovation and bridging the gap between academia and industry.”

“On behalf of the Royal University of Bhutan, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Cadence for supporting us in our pursuit of excellence in education and research. Integrating Cadence’s cutting-edge EDA tools into our curriculum amplifies our commitment to providing students with a robust, industry-aligned educational journey. We are excited to collaborate with Cadence and empower our future engineers with the expertise and capabilities essential for thriving in the ever-evolving landscape of VLSI design.” – Dasho Nidup Dorji, Vice Chancellor, Royal University of Bhutan

The Cadence University Program grants easy access to the leading electronic design automation tools used for academic research and education to develop advanced users of Cadence technology. Through this program, Cadence aims to train the next generation of innovators, influencing the electronics industry for years to come. Cadence has also partnered with MeitY to provide EDA tools to 104 universities, aiming to create a talent pool of 85,000 engineers in VLSI Design by 2027. Cadence aims to work closely with academic institutions to enhance, improve, and extend the knowledge, capabilities, and expertise of the ecosystem.
