• 3DEXPERIENCE Platform on the Cloud Prepares the Next Generation of Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing Engineers and Technicians
• Workforce Development and Readiness Crucial for Future of Washington State Economy

WALTHAM, Mass. — July 25, 2017 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) today announced that the Center of Excellence for Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing, representing eight institutions of higher learning including Washington State University, Bellingham Technical College, Clover Park Technical College, Everett Community College, Lake Washington Institute of Technology, North Seattle College, Olympic College, and Renton Technical College, has selected the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop and refine the future workforce of the state of Washington.

The 900 cloud-based user deal with the Center of Excellence will help the eight participating academic institutions train and prepare students with hands-on experience designing, engineering and manufacturing in the new Experience Economy.

Through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s intuitive, web-based user interface, collaborative environments are easily created.  Students can start multidisciplinary projects on campus, continue at home, and discuss issues using online communities or screen-sharing sessions, always having the latest version of their work at their fingertips.  At any time, educators can remotely monitor projects, manage idea-maturity, provide guidance, and assign grades.  Collaboration becomes easy, dynamic, and natural among educators, students, and industry mentors.

“As the new economy of systems engineering, embedded electronics, mechatronics and new material sciences becomes critical to Washington state businesses, local colleges and universities are focusing on the training needed to create the workforce of tomorrow,” said Mary Kaye Bredeson, Executive Director, Center of Excellence for Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing. “If we are to keep high paying, skilled jobs in Washington, we must change education to meet the demands of the future workforce. Today’s partnership with Dassault Systèmes and their 3DEXPERIENCE platform will do just that.”

“Successful educational institutions will leverage the leading experience-driven technologies and strategies to expose students to realistic collaborative multidisciplinary projects and build unique digital skills that industry leaders seek among new hires,” said Bruno Latchague, Senior Executive Vice President, Global Field Operations (Americas), Dassault Systèmes. “With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, mentoring and support, we and the Center of Excellence for Aerospace & Advanced Manufacturing hope to positively impact the human resources crisis currently affecting the engineering market in North America and around the world.”
