Launch Your EDA Career With
The Si2 University Partner Network
The Si2 University Partner Network connects qualified engineering student-partners to their future employers in a program that offers real-world, electronic design automation job experience. Partners strengthen their resumes and broaden their network with prospective employers, while employers identify and work with prospective employees.
Si2 is the industry’s most experienced, federally registered, research and development joint venture for the collaborative development of standard, interoperable, EDA software. Si2-volunteer partners are vital contributors to a variety of R&D projects.
Here’s how it works.
- Partners must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate engineering degree program.
- Partners must have some object-oriented programming experience and a general understanding of semiconductor design.
- Partners apply to join the network and, if accepted, are assigned to projects as they become available.
- Partners are volunteers and personal contributors, not university representatives.
