UGS PLM Software Grants UGS NX Digital Product Development Software to New Mexico State University
UGS PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced an in-kind software grant to New Mexico State University (NMSU) that includes 60 seats of its UGS NXTM digital product development software.
The software will be used primarily by students and faculty in the mechanical engineering department and will enable the university to place additional focus on graduating engineers who are trained on industry leading digital product development software.
UGS PLM Software made the in-kind grants through its Global Opportunities in Product Lifecycle Management (GO PLM™) initiative, which leads the PLM industry in the commercial value of in-kind grants it provides at more than US$4 billion annually. The company’s GO PLM initiative brings together five complementary programs focused on academic partnership; community relations; regional productivity; youth and displaced worker development; and the Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education (PACE) program. The initiative provides PLM technology to more than 915,000 students annually at nearly 9,000 global institutions, where it is used at every academic level – from grade schools to graduate engineering research programs.
“We are very pleased with the grant of state-of-the-art CAD design tools from UGS PLM Software,” said Steven P. Castillo, dean, College of Engineering, NMSU. “Our students will be well prepared to officially enter the workforce through the use of these tools incorporated into our curriculum. We will use the software to build full three-dimensional models of objects and analyze the conditions the parts would experience in the real world.
“NMSU’s goal of using UGS PLM Software in its courses is to teach students how to understand modeling using finite elements. There are many software programs for modeling, but UGS PLM Software’s solutions are particularly useful in teaching because they allow students a lot of freedom in what they can do. It’s easy to get numbers, but students need to know how to determine if the numbers are right.”
“We are committed to our partnership with NMSU and its ability to develop world-class engineers and technologists for our global communities, customers and business partners,” said Dave Shirk, executive vice president, Global Marketing, UGS PLM Software. “We are proud to be involved with NMSU’s strong academic curriculum to help enhance manufacturing in New Mexico and beyond.”
