Dassault Systmes North America and UMass Lowell Announce Expanded Partnership, With Plans for On-Campus 3DEXPERIENCE Center

Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) and UMass
Lowell, a nationally ranked public research institution located in
Lowell, Massachusetts, today announced 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, targeted to open in 2019, 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.

The center is part of Dassault Systèmes’ strategy to partner with
companies and academic
institutions to create the workforce of the future. Plans for the
new 3DEXPERIENCE Center at UMass Lowell were announced during the 3DEXPERIENCE
Forum being held in Boston this week. 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.

“Technology is fueling a new generation of customers that demand
web-connected, customizable, sustainably-produced products, and the
product designers of tomorrow will need the knowledge and skills to
deliver on these expectations,” said Dean Marsh, Managing Director,
North America, Dassault Systèmes. “We’re thrilled that the students of
UMass Lowell will get real-world experience with the tools and
technologies that will shape the industries of tomorrow, and put them in
the best position to hit the ground running on Day 1 of their careers.”

“For more than 120 years, UMass Lowell’s Francis College of Engineering
has educated students for careers in key industries through excellence
in academics and research, and an emphasis on hands-on, experiential
learning. Incorporating new technologies like 3D design, digital
simulation and 3D printing into our curriculum is essential for
preparing our students for careers in the 21st century,” said Joseph
Hartman, the university’s dean of engineering. “As a major educator of
New England’s future business leaders, this partnership with Dassault
Systèmes will help us attract the best and brightest and prepare them
for success after graduation while also accelerating our efforts to meet
critical workforce needs.”
