Siemens, a global technology company, is providing its PLM (product lifecycle management) software. Used by more than 140,000 companies across the international manufacturing industry, the software helps design and develop products for aerospace, automotive, medical and various other industries. Other components of the PLM software bundle include Siemens’ LMS software, NX software, Fibersim portfolio, Tecnomatix portfolio and Femap software.

The software will be used in junior and senior level classes offered in CECAS’ mechanical engineering and bioengineering departments. Competitive student teams at the university will be able to use the software as well.  

Clemson President James Clements told university media that the partnership with Siemens “will provide our students with access to cutting-edge technical tools that can make them even more attractive to future employers.”
