Purdue University is the latest university to join the PTC University Authorized Training Program to deliver PTC software training to the surrounding engineering community.
The training will be administered by Purdue's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Center and led by Nathan Hartman, director of the center and professor of computer graphics technology, in the College of Technology. The PLM Center brings together experts from across the university to serve as valuable resources for industry. Since 2002, the PLM Center has been dedicated to promoting the advancement and implementation of PLM through research and education. The College of Technology's reputation for industry collaboration, use-inspired research and work at high technology readiness levels reaches around the globe.
“The programs offered by the Purdue University PLM Center using the PTC University Authorized Training Program will be instrumental in our efforts to provide professional level courses for companies that develop, produce and sustain products across industrial sectors,” Hartman said. “Our goal of promoting PLM-oriented education, and our high level of industry engagement with national manufacturers and other organizations, lines up perfectly with PTC’s commitment to continued professional education.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for PTC and our customers,” said John Stuart, senior vice president, global education, PTC. “Purdue University will provide our customers with a unique opportunity to benefit from best practice training traditionally offered by PTC in addition to the research offered at the Purdue University PLM Center. We are pleased to work with the University to give students and others the opportunity to learn about product design software and technology that’s being used by many global manufacturers.”
Participating in the PTC University Authorized Training Program allows Purdue University to leverage PTC University content to support their professional education curriculum. The Purdue University classes include instruction on model-based definition using PTC Creo® design software and configuration management through PTC Windchill® software, the industry’s leading PLM solution with more than 1.1 million users worldwide. Those who successfully complete this coursework will receive a continuing education certificate of completion from Purdue University.
