NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will donate $30 million to the Stanford School of Engineering to help build a new center for education and research. The 130,000-square-foot center will be called the Huang Center, and is expected to be completed in early 2010.
The 130,000-square-foot center will be named after Huang, a Stanford electrical engineering alumnus, and is expected to be completed in early 2010.

“The School of Engineering at Stanford is a major source of intellectual energy for Silicon Valley and beyond,” said Huang, who earned his master’s degree in electrical engineering at Stanford in 1992.

Santa Clara-based Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) partnered recently with Stanford as a founding member of the Pervasive Parallelism Lab, whose charter is to develop new techniques, tools and training materials to allow software engineers to take full advantage of multi-processor computer systems.
