Keysight Technologies is establishing a long-term university engagement program in Europe to foster the development of industry-ready engineers. The program’s first year university participants include Paris Sud University, University of Leeds, University of Manchester and Aschaffenburg University.
“We pride ourselves on offering high quality courses in electronics and communications delivered by dedicated experts and superb teaching resources, maintaining that position requires continual refinement and investment,” said Rob Sloan, Professor of Millimetre-Wave Electronics & Royal Society Industrial Fellow of University of Manchester, UK. “Key partnerships, such as this, one help maintain that premier status. Thanks to Keysight's support, our students will continue to be educated in the latest techniques and exposed to industry leading software and hardware tools.”
"The University of Leeds has a long-standing relationship with Keysight Technologies in both teaching and research,” said Professor Ian D. Robertson, Head of School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering of University of Leeds, UK. “This new scheme will give students even more opportunities for working with the world leader in electronic design automation and test for wireless communications systems."
“The special relationship we have with Keysight Technologies is one of the steps to build synergy between business and education,” said Marie-Christine Henriot, Assistant Director for Industrial Relations of Polytech Paris Sud, France. “Working alongside Keysight, a worldwide, leading edge electronic design and test company, allows us to show our students how creative and competent they need to be at the end of their studies. It also helps them to imagine job opportunities while they are still learning.”
“The University of Applied Sciences Aschaffenburg is pleased about the cooperation with Keysight,” said Professor Mewes, Head of the center for natural sciences of Aschaffenburg University, Germany. “Our students have an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience with the worldwide leader in electronic design and test solutions. Internships, bachelor theses and technical presentations in lectures are important elements in the practical training of our students.”
“Investing in the promising young talents is a significant part of Keysight’s policy,” said Benoit Neel, vice president and general manager, Keysight Technologies. “We are privileged to be able to collaborate with leading academic centres in Europe, famous for their exceptionally high standards of teaching programs. As a company we, recognise students of these universities as our future.”
The program is open to interns and graduates studying electronics, energy systems, wireless communications, computer science, materials science, photonics and optronic systems or an equivalent degree.
