Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) and UMass Lowell, a nationally ranked public research institution located in Lowell, Massachusetts, have announced that they will open a digital learning center designed to let engineering students get hands-on experience in designing and creating products for the Experience Economy.
The new 3DEXPERIENCE Center will provide students with access to Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its design and collaboration applications, including the company’s industry-leading SOLIDWORKS CAD software. Students at the center will learn how to design products using Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality environments, how to incorporate new technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence into their product designs, and how to bring their designs to life using Robotics and Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing.
This new facility expands Dassault Systèmes’ existing relationship with UMass Lowell, which currently includes membership in PERC, the Printed Electronics Research Center, as well as support for the school’s Senior Capstone Project. Dassault Systèmes will support the new 3DEXPERIENCE Center through financial contributions as well as software licenses.
