PTC added the University of Alaska Anchorage, Montana Tech and Itasca Community College to its list of more than 400 colleges and universities using its software products. The PTC Education Initiative is a program engineered for students from secondary through the university level. The college and university component of this, University Edition, combines PTC’s Pro/E software with courseware for students. In addition, the University Edition enables students to master using the software and prepares them to be tomorrow’s innovators with credentials required for success in today’s skills-driven job market.
The University Edition license includes up to 500 seats of Pro/E along with approximately 55 other applications that include analysis tools, sheet metal, and Behavioral Modeling modules. In addition to the software, teachers and professors receive training and tutorials, technical support, and software upgrades to enhance the teaching environment. Other software available for colleges and universities include Precision LMS, a complete learning management system, Mathcad, which allows students to document mathematical work on a virtual white board, and Windchill ProductPoint, which enables collaborative product development leveraging the latest social computing technology.
“Pro/E has been the CAD tool of choice for the past 15 years in the University of Florida Integrated Product and Process Design Program,” said Keith Stanfill, director, Industrial Systems and Engineering, University of Florida. “Our students benefit from using the same tools used by professionals in the wide variety of industries participating in IPPD. In addition to an outstanding multidisciplinary product design education, experience with Pro/E helps to differentiate our graduates as they transition out into industry.”
