Siemens PLM Software and the SME Education Foundation will provide a package to the academic institution including unlimited seats of any Siemens PLM Software technology; free center-based training, and free upgrades and tech support. The range of software includes Teamcenter software, Tecnomatix software, NX software, and Solid Edge software.
Siemens will provide access to PLM technology, which otherwise would be out of reach for the academic community, giving students a distinct advantage by being able to use the same PLM technology widely-used by leading manufacturing companies. The experience gained in the use of these tools better prepares students for today’s highly-competitive manufacturing jobs requiring full knowledge of modern technologies and tools.
Undergraduate and graduate students can use the software to acquire skills in simulation, robotics, manufacturing processes, facilities planning, and product data management. Secondary students are engaged in activities that will reinforce their high school experience and encourage them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
Siemens PLM Software Grant applications will be evaluated based on school size, academic program content, program exposure, community impact, and financial need. A typical grant involves in-kind contributions of the PLM software for a set period of time along with support and upgrades covered by the grant. Extensive training materials are also available. For more information and access to the online grant application, visit www.smeef.org/programs/grants/siements.html.
Siemens’ GO PLM™ initiative leads the industry in the commercial value of the in-kind grants it provides and brings together four complementary community involvement programs focused on academic partnership, regional productivity, youth, displaced worker development, and the PACE (Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education) program. GO PLM provides PLM technology to more than one million students yearly at nearly 10,500 global institutions, where it is used at every academic level – from grade schools to graduate engineering research programs.
