software-engineeringTrinity’s School of Engineering has received today a €65 million grant from Siemens PLM Software, enabling access to industry-leading software for Trinity students.

Some of the software that will be available through this grant includes “Jack” software in the Siemens “Tecnomatix” portfolio, described as “industry-leading” digital manufacturing software used in the automotive, aerospace, machinery and shipbuilding industries.

The use of this will allow Trinity students across all engineering strands to test their engineering design solutions against a vast range of virtual users and their abilities for the first time. This software will also help advance students’ understanding of how to provide engineering and biomedical engineering product solutions, according to a press release issued by the press office of the Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Science.

In addition, it is explained that graduates with this type of software training are highly recruited candidates for advanced technology jobs, and by having access to this technology, students will be able to gain important real-world experience during their studies at Trinity.

Speaking in the Faculty’s press release, Dora Smith, the global director of Siemens’ Academic Partner Program, said: “This grant from Siemens PLM Software enables Trinity’s School of Engineering to teach their students on the same world-class PLM software for digital product design, simulation, analysis, manufacturing and product data management that is used by leading manufacturers around the world”, adding that “as a result, their graduates will be highly qualified for careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.”

Prof Darina Murray, Head of Discipline of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Trinity, expressed her gratitude to Siemens and the UK distributor Simsol for making this software available to students. In the press release, she stated: “We are grateful to Siemens PLM Software for its commitment to advance educational opportunities for our students.”

The in kind grant was provided by an academic program from Siemens that delivers product lifecycle management software for schools at every academic level.
