|By Evan Hollins -- Black College Wire|
American electronics company Siemens unveiled plans recently to make a series of software donations to Howard University, totaling more than $150 million.
The announcement was made at the Business Software Alliance CEO Forum, a gathering of chief executives from the software and computer hardware industries held in Washington, D.C.
The in-kind grants were made through Siemens PLM Software’s GO PLM Program, and include engineering software, student/instructor training and specialized certification programs that are designed for manufacturing, engineering, industrial design and other programs and forms of technology.
“Howard University was chosen to receive this GO PLM Grant because of its outstanding PLM Collaboration Proposal, its gifted students and dedicated faculty, and wisdom / foresight of its leaders,” said Hulas King, Director of Community Relations for Siemens.
Howard joins 49 TOP rated Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education (PACE) institutions globally who are preparing to be the next generation PLM Engineers.
Students and faculty are excited about the grant, many stating that it was much needed.
