The Haute Ecole Arc Ingénierie uses CATIA in the area of micromechanics for its research and development activities as well as in its engineering curriculum.
In effect, the Haute Ecole’s ambition is to be recognized as a reference for companies in Switzerland by turning out students with the appropriate skills that will fulfill their job requirements.
Dassault Systemes Response
The Haute Ecole specializes in micromechanics and focuses on two principal activities – teaching and research. As a University of Applied Sciences, and in addition to its professional training classes as a Dassault Systèmes certified training center, the Haute Ecole provides its students with an electrical, mechanical and micro-technology engineering curriculum in sync with the needs of the Swiss industrial sector such as the intricate design of watch mechanisms.
The Haute-Ecole eventually deployed the CATIA solutions in 2004, after a few years of partial implementations at the different laboratories. Their choice was in part due to CATIA’s intuitive graphic interface making it easy to learn as well as the ability of the CATIA solutions to cover their entire development process.
