Students there will now have access to the same Siemens' product lifecycle management (PLM) software used in the global manufacturing industry to design, develop and manufacture products in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, machinery, shipbuilding, and high-tech electronics.

"The manufacturing industry in America is on the rise and it is being transformed by a software revolution that is enhancing productivity, increasing efficiency and speeding time to market," said Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO, Siemens PLM Software. "This revolution requires a highly trained workforce. With this grant, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College will be able to integrate world-class PLM technology into its curriculum, so that its students are even better prepared for co-op assignments and for high quality manufacturing jobs."

Cincinnati State President O'dell M. Owens expressed gratitude for the grant, and said it will be put to good use. "Cincinnati State is a career college, and we're known for our strong business relationships," Dr. Owens said. "This software grant from Siemens allows us to send our graduates into the manufacturing workplace ready to go the minute they walk in the door. That will be a huge competitive advantage for them and an even greater asset for the Cincinnati business community."

Siemens' software will be used in Cincinnati State's Center for Innovative Technologies to support its mechanical engineering and industrial design technologies programs, as well as other programs in the college. Computer labs on the Clifton campus will be outfitted with Siemens software to support computer-aided design (CAD) courses. Students and faculty will use the software in assignments and research related to mechanical engineering, industrial design and manufacturing management.
