Agilent has donated bench-top electronic measurement equipment worth $300,000 to the Texas Instruments Electronics Design Laboratory, which opened at the University of California, Berkeley on April 11. The lab will provide more than 1,000 Berkeley students each year with hands-on experience applying the principles they learn in gateway electrical engineering courses such as microelectronic circuit design.
The new lab and adjoining student lounge in Cory Hall – the home of the Electrical Engineering Division of UC Berkeley’s Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences – is fully equipped and delivers a real-world learning environment.
“Agilent Technologies has been our close partner in nurturing the creativity and drive of our students,” said S. Shankar Sastry, UC Berkeley’s dean of engineering. “We are deeply grateful for this tremendous gift, which will help prepare our students to lead technological innovation in the global economy.”
