Binghamton University opens new computer-aided engineering instructional lab

Binghamton University has opened a Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) instructional laboratory in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science facilities.

Oct. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton University has opened a Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) instructional laboratory in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science facilities.

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) solution, and Solid Edge® software, the most complete mainstream hybrid 2D/3D CAD system, that both use synchronous technology, a Siemens PLM Software innovation that combines the speed and flexibility of direct modeling with the precise control of dimension driven design; as well as Teamcenter® software, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management solution; and Tecnomatix® software, the world’s leading digital manufacturing solution. The software is especially powerful, allowing students to design parts and manipulate them on a three dimensional axis. For example, students can design a hydraulic piston choosing the quality and type of material, from plastic to brass to titanium or even create a virtual environment to evaluate how a workplace can be made more efficient or safer for workers.

Note:  GO PLM, NX, Solid Edge and Tecnomatix are trademarks or registered trademarks of Siemens Product Lifecycle Management Software Inc. or its subsidiaries in the United States and in other countries.
