After a short hiatus, we are proud to announce that the Imagination University Programme is back. Following our transition to new ownership, the refreshed Imagination University Programme (IUP) course looks to harness the core strength of the company, namely low-power GPUs for efficient embedded graphics processing (ranging from the entry-level for TV GUIs up to high-performance gaming) and neural network accelerators for edge-based artificial intelligence.
Robert Owen created and directed three of the world’s leading industry to university programmes: for TI, Imagination/MIPS and RS Components. In parallel, he created and ran a successful media business. In 2019 he returned to Imagination to revive and reposition their University Programme, which is now focused on the "silicon engines" of GPUs (graphics processing units) and NNAs (neural network accelerators). The application of these engines in graphics at all levels, from TV displays to 3D gaming, and to artificial intelligence at-the-edge in portable low-power devices, is driving the need for new education initiatives. These projects will assist teachers of the next generation of engineers and programmers, to understand how to solve real-world problems with these exciting technologies. With 25 years of experience in the field of industry-to-academia collaboration, Robert has unique insight into this market and a formidable network of relationships around the world.
