Cadence University Program

The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science is a member of the Cadence University Program. This program provides a wide range of high-level electrical engineering design, simulation and analysis tools used by leading developers in the industry and for research.

The products provided through our participation in the Cadence University Program are an essential resource in meeting two of our main educational objectives for the Electrical and Computer Engineering undergraduate programs, including:

To teach students how to use state-of-the-art computer tools to solve electrical engineering problems

To expose students to hands-on engineering experience through laboratory courses

SEAS also uses Cadence products as an essential resource for the graduate Computer Engineering program that focuses on Microelectronics and VLSI Systems.

Course descriptions for both graduate and undergraduate classes using Cadence products include:

ECE 2110 Circuit Theory

ECE 4140 VLSI Design and Simulation

ECE 4150 ASIC-Mixed-Signal Design and Testing of VLSI Circuits

ECE 6218 Advanced Analog VLSI Circuit Design

ECE 6213 Modeling of VLSI Circuits

ECE 6214 High-Level VLSI Design Methodology

ECE 6216 RF/VLSI Circuit Design

ECE 6215 Introduction to MEMS and NEMS
