Penn State University received a $750 million PLM software grant from Siemens to help Pennsylvania students get hands-on experience with technology used in manufacturing. Courtesy: SiemensSiemens announced a product lifecycle management (PLM) software grant with a commercial value of $750 million with Penn State University to enhance academic and research programs. Students at Penn State will now have access to the same Siemens PLM software used in the automotive, aerospace, medical devices, machinery, shipbuilding, and electronics industries.

The grant is designed to support programs at nine Penn State Commonwealth Campuses in the Philadelphia region and throughout Pennsylvania as software's role continues to grow in manufacturing. These campuses will incorporate PLM software into student course work and research related to computer-aided-design, engineering simulation, industrial design, digital manufacturing and manufacturing management.

Penn State Great Valley will use the PLM software as it builds a new Engineering Center and Multidisciplinary Engineering Design degree program in conjunction with the Abington and Brandywine campuses.
