Giga has recently signed a new year's cooperation agreement with Shanghai Jiaotong University's School of Microelectronics, which will continue to joint training postgraduate students in the coming year.
According to the agreement, the two sides will take the ‘double tutorial system’, that is, the supervisors will consist of the Senior R&D Engineers from Giga and the professors from Shanghai Jiaotong University’s School of Microelectronics, and then formulate a specific training plan for students. With the development of scientific research projects, this system will effectively improve the scientific research and practice ability of the graduate students. At the same time, we will train more EDA talents which are in short supply in China.
Due to a lack of available talents in EDA industry, Giga has actively sought cooperation with universities since our inception in 2019. In the past two years, Giga has not only engaged in technical cooperation with Tsinghua University, Southern University of Science and Technology, Ningbo University, Zhejiang University, and other universities, we have also actively carried out joint talent training plans with various universities. The joint training aims to train the talents “customized” to meet the needs of EDA industry by strengthening scientific research cooperation between schools and enterprises. This system is not only train more talents with innovative and practical engineering capabilities for enterprises, but also promotes the all-round development of disciplines.
In July 2019, Giga has become the joint training base for graduate students of Xidian University Xidian-SMiT EDA Research Institute, and has been training EDA-oriented master graduates for Xidian for three years.
In July 2020, Giga has become the practice base for graduate students of Shanghai Jiaotong University’s School of Microelectronics. Giga was able to cooperate with Shanghai Jiaotong University’s School of Microelectronics and renew its contract this year, which proves Giga’s technical strength and training students’ abilities. It also fully demonstrated the determination and attitude of Giga to train talent for the industry.
There is a long way to go in the talent training of EDA industry. Giga is willing to win-win cooperate with more universities to train more talents, and make our due contribution to the EDA industry in China.
