The new 1,100 square foot, 20-seat laboratory was established through a special partnership between the University’s Divisions of External Affairs, Academic Affairs, and Administration, and enabled the earlier acceptance of $25.9 million in-kind software grant from Siemens PLM Software in the Bold.Brilliant.Campaign for Binghamton University.
The new facility is fully equipped with software tools that will make students more marketable and provide an edge in the highly competitive job market of today’s global economy.
The lab is arranged using high-end graphic work stations with a thin client interface and high resolution monitors so that teams of students can work together on projects maximizing the software capability available in leading edge tools.
The in-kind software grant, made through Siemens PLM Software’s GO PLM™ program, includes training and specialized software certification programs that will benefit thousands of students, faculty and researchers.
The in-kind software grant includes NX™ software, the fully integrated computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE)
