High-frequency EDA supplier AWR Corp. is to keep its Graduate Gift Initiative program going for 2011 and is extending it to students worldwide.
This initiative provides qualified electrical engineering graduates with a free, fully-functional, 1-year term license of AWR’s Microwave Office and Visual System Simulator software suites – including AXIEM 3D planar EM simulator.
The software is restricted to the graduate’s personal-use (node locked versus floating license), but is not restricted to educational use but rather open for commercial use at the graduate’s current/future employer.
Sherry Hess, vice president of marketing at AWR, said, “The gifting of AWR software to graduating electrical engineering students has quickly become a resume asset as employers favor first-hand tool experience with AWR software.”
The Graduate Gift Initiative debuted in 2010 but was restricted to US qualified learning institutions. AWR says it has received requests from global employers and international universities in the last year so it has not only decided to continue the program in 2011 but to expand it world-wide.
AWR's Graduate Gift Initiative is available to all qualified class of 2011 graduating students with BS, MS, or PhD Electrical Engineering degrees from universities, colleges and accredited learning institutions within AWR’s University Program.
To get access graduates have to register for the AWR Graduate Gift Initiative Program as well as join AWR LinkedIn Academia Community.
