University Program

The worldwide Imperas University Program was created to inspire and support the next generation of technologists and innovators. It grants academic and research institutions access to the tools and technology needed to address difficult challenges across embedded software and systems, from development and test, to quality and standards compliance, to security and IoT, to system architecture and optimization. Through this program, Imperas software reaches thousands of students and professors worldwide every year.

The Imperas University Program encourages participation in the embedded systems community in three ways: use on research projects, use in the classroom, and sharing of virtual platform models through the Open Virtual Platforms (OVP) Library.
