Altium Education is the next step in Altium’s education initiative that makes learning electronics more accessible. In 2020, Altium launched Upverter Education, a modular PCB design program created for high school students. Focused on higher education institutions, Altium Education was developed for university and college students studying engineering and computer science.
Designed for virtual, hybrid, and physical classrooms, Altium Education’s curriculum complements engineering courses and offers teachers the opportunity to integrate it into their current lesson plans.
“Understanding prototyping skills is a necessary step for electronics and communications engineering (ECE) students,” said Siddharth Deliwala, director of ESE laboratory programs, School of Engineering and Applied Science at University of Pennsylvania. “Altium Education’s course provides the perfect introduction to PCB design that I need to help prepare my students for advanced engineering courses. All of our engineering students should take this online program.
The program offers hands-on lessons focused on schematics, design layout, and manufacturing. Students will receive guided instruction that will culminate in the realization of their own manufacturable circuit board. To support professors and teachers, an educator’s guide is provided for the course. A free license of Altium Designer, the industry-leading ECAD software, is included for any college or university student enrolled in the course.
Upon completion of the course, students will earn a certificate that they have successfully completed Altium’s training course covering the fundamentals of PCB design. This course expands their skills and helps prepare students for entry into a career as a professional engineer.
“Our mission with Altium Education is to provide a college-level curriculum and professional tools that introduce students to the art, science, and technology involved in circuit board design,” said Rea Callender, vice – president of education. “Our hope with Altium Education is to develop and expand talent in the world of electronic design.”
Altium Education is now available for college and university students and faculty who wish to complete their engineering curriculum. Units can be taken consecutively or in order of interest in traditional university and college courses, such as fundamentals of electrical engineering, power electronics, robotic systems design, alternative energies and micro-electronics. waves.
