TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Helps Students Acquire Real-World EDA Skills with New Licensing Program

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today launched the Agilent EEsof EDA Student License Program, designed to provide access to Agilent EEsof EDA software on students’ personal computers.

With the license, students no longer have to use university lab computers or log in to a university system to access Agilent EEsof software via Agilent EEsof license servers. Instead, students can now access Agilent EEsof software anyplace, anytime on their own computers. Agilent EEsof software available through the licensing program includes Advanced Design System (ADS), Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro), Genesys and SystemVue.

The licensing program is open to students attending universities that participate in the Agilent EEsof EDA University Educational Support Program. Students can request a license by completing the Student Codeword Request form at agilent.com/find/eesof-university. Issued licenses will be the same as those actively supported for the student’s university. If the university has a supported ADS university donation package, for example, students will receive ADS licenses. All licenses are valid for 12 months and are for educational purposes only. They cannot be used for commercial purposes.

These licenses are only being offered in the Americas, Europe (excluding Russia) and Japan. Specifics about program requirements are available at agilent.com/find/eesof-university. Interested parties may also contact a local Agilent EEsof field engineer or Agilent EEsof’s university program manager at john_kikuchi@agilent.com.
