Sabrina Yarzada

UC Davis, Senior Electrical & Computer Engineering

“I was first introduced to Altium Designer through the EE Emerge Course at UC Davis. Having Altium designer skills gave me an edge among other applicants in getting interviews and ultimately landing me an internship at NASA Jet Propulsion Labs”

Andre Knoesen

UC Davis, Chair Electrical and Computer Engineering

“One of the most important things for our EE or CE students is gaining knowledge of Altium Designer. Students' skills in Altium Designer help them attain high visibility with employers and it is often the differentiator among other applicants as they are looking for internships or jobs upon graduation.”
