Siemens Expands Partnership with Pennsylvania State University

The company has provided an in-kind grant of PLM software valued at $750 million.

Siemens has deepened its partnership with Pennsylvania State University by provided an in-kind grand of PLM (product lifecycle management) software to enhance academic and research programs. The grant is valued at about $750 million.

This donation is created to support programs at nine Penn State commonwealth campuses throughout the Philadelphia region and the state. The campuses are to incorporate PLM software into coursework as well as research focused on CAD, engineering simulation, digital manufacturing and manufacturing management.

“Manufacturing is the most sophisticated, forward-looking and innovative business function in the world today and we need to let students, parents and administrators know what these jobs look like and what students need to learn in order to get them,” said Eric Spiegel, president and CEO, Siemens USA. “Our enhanced partnership expands the longstanding relationship between Siemens and Penn State and offers students valuable academic and workforce opportunities to start careers in this high-tech industry.”
