AWR Graduate Gift Initiative Provides Graduating Engineering Students with Tools to Succeed
ECEDHA Annual Conference and ECExpo, Clearwater Beach, Fla. - March 15, 2010 - AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, today announced the AWR Graduate Gift Initiative, which will provide qualified* 2010 graduates a fully-functional 1-year term license free for its popular Microwave Office® and Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) software suites - inclusive of AXIEM™ 3D planar EM software. The goal of the initiative is to give graduating electrical engineering students a career head start by providing hands-on exposure to AWR's high-frequency design software. The announcement was made at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association Annual Conference and Expo held here.
Working with universities worldwide to empower students with access to RF/Microwave software tools, AWR's Preferred University Program was launched in direct response to industry and academia expressing the need for students to have access to these tools prior to graduation and entering the job market.
"With the increasing demand for wireless-enabled devices and the decrease in microwave and RF engineering graduates, tomorrow's designers will need to work harder and smarter," said Sherry Hess, vice president of marketing at AWR. "Making our design tools available to these graduates is one of the goals of our program and is part of our commitment to making engineering students more attractive to industry by helping them become proficient with the actual tools of the trade."
AWR's Graduate Gift Initiative is available to all qualified* class-year 2010 graduating BS, MS, or PhD Electrical Engineering students and includes the latest full-featured versions of Microwave Office and Visual System Simulator. Two simple steps are all that's needed to get started:
