TI is one of the first companies to have built an extensive partnership with Chinese universities. It is the U Program that attracted me to the big TI family.
When I began my work, China didn’t invest as much in higher education as now. Few students had access to advanced international technology. Against this backdrop, TI decided to accelerate the growth of the “U Program."
In 2000, the third technical center was established in Chengdu. From then on, TI began its aggressive journey of accomplishing the goal of building 100 DSP labs for universities. Besides investing equipment in colleges, we also carried out a National DSP Design Contest in order to help promote innovation among Chinese students.
To me, the TI U Program is not only work, but also a great project which holds great importance to Chinese education and the development of next generation engineers.
