Universidad de La Plata

Industry: Aerospace & Defense

Argentina’s prestigious Universidad de la Plata and CONAE used Dassault Systèmes technology to design, develop, test and manage two of the seven major instruments constituting the SAC-D Aquarius project: a microwave radiometer (MWR) to help measure elements such as wind speed and ice concentrations, and an infrared camera (NIRST), new technology that will help identify hot spot activities such as fires and volcanoes.

The Challenge

The Faculty of Engineering and the Aeronautics Department of National University of La Plata, one of the leading and most prestigious educational institutions in Argentina, wanted to ensure that its engineering faculty graduates met all software professional requirements upon graduation.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Partnering with Dassault Systèmes, the Faculty of Engineering and the Aeronautics Department of UNLP offer students the chance to be part of worldclass projects by equipping the university’s state-of-the-art PLM Center with the latest DS PLM software solutions.


Dassault Systèmes solutions at UNLP help train a new generation of engineering professionals responsible for the design, testing and maintenance of new products and services ranging from new space satellite applications to alternate green sources of energy.
