Mentor Graphics selects UCSB as their first choice university partner by conducting a comprehensive management survey


Mentor Graphics is a leader in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Through their well-established products and services, they enable companies to develop better electronic products faster and more cost-effectively. EDA is a very competitive field where having the advantage of interacting with and attracting the best and brightest engineers will give a competitive edge. The Wilsonville, Oregon based company has been successfully engaged with the students and faculty of UC Santa Barbara for a number of years. Recently, Mentor Graphics went through a detailed exercise to rank U.S. universities they interact with. The results were used to determine their priorities for driving university research collaborations and targeted student recruiting in a cost effective manner.
