Cadence Academic Network Activities

The Department of Electrical, Computer & Communication Engineering (ECCE) at the Faculty of Engineering (FE) of the Notre Dame University - Louaize (NDU), Lebanon, has joined the Cadence Academic Network in Spring 2010.
The aim is to be an active member in the area of robust low power design methodologies.


The ECCE department has an extensive experience in undergraduate education. This education aims at nurturing the students' knowledge and competence.

Towards this end, the Cadence software tools provide the students with the opportunity to have hands-on experience regarding the dynamics of basic as well as state-of-the-art electronic circuits. The students can also substantiate their knowledge by applying the theories directly in simulations using cutting-edge technology processes. Definitely, the level of involvement with the tools should match the level of the course itself.

The following is a list of NDU-specific courses that can make use of the Cadence software tools:

Obligatory Courses

Elective Courses


The Cadence software tools constitute an integral part of the research infrastructure at the ECCE department. We are currently active in the field of robust low power design methodologies for several applications including wireless and biomedical.

The technologies of interest include RF, mixed-signal, digital as well as PCB.


Special Activities

6th RaMSiS Summer School

The Faculty of Engineering at the Notre Dame University - Louaize (NDU), Lebanon,  and the RaMSiS (Radio and Mixed Signal Integrated Systems) Group of the ICT School at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden have successfully organized the 6th RaMSiS Summer School that took place from July 12 until July 14, 2010 on the NDU Campus.

The School title was “Next Generation Mobile Communications: Chipset Design and Applications”. It included lectures from internationally-renowned experts in the fields of wireless semiconductors and wireless communication systems. These experts came from Canada, Germany, Lebanon, Sweden and the USA.
