Worldwide University Program 

Fostering the Innovations of Tomorrow 

Through our Worldwide University Programs we aim to inspire and foster the world's next generation of technologists and innovators by providing academic and research institutions with access to the tools and technology needed to prepare well-educated students who can meet difficult challenges ranging from IC/SoC and optical design to applications for software quality and security. Synopsys software reaches thousands of students and professors across the globe every year. Benefits of membership in the program include access to technical support, training, curriculum and more.


Synopsys offers more than 100 full-semester courses for Bachelor and Master Programs in microelectronic design, as well as a variety of topic-specific materials for workshops, short lectures and labs.
