3DPLM Software & Dassault Systèmes Hosts Faculty Development Programme ‘FEAT 2015′ for Engineering Professors
3DPLM Software Solutions Ltd. and Dassault Systèmes hosted a four day faculty development programme named FEAT2015, which concluded on 3rd December. More than 25 professors from selected engineering colleges across India attended this event. The goal of FEAT is to equip faculty in engineering colleges with the requisite awareness and skills so that they are able to enable students to embrace cutting edge technologies.
Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE company, provides Business and People with virtual universe to imagine sustainable innovation. 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides cutting-edge and next-gen solutions in CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM technologies for industries to revolutionize product innovations. Dassault Systèmes technologies and solutions are used by wide spectrum of colleges to train their students on these cutting edge technologies. This helps the students to become industry ready as several companies have already embraced 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
3DPLM Software solutions has its state of the art campuses in Pune, Bengaluru and Mumbai and is the R&D Centre for Dassault Systèmes in India. 3DPLM is actively working with many engineering colleges and universities in India for Industry-Academia connect. This was the second year that FEAT was hosted in 3DPLM Software’s campus in Hinjewadi, Pune. Senior professors from engineering colleges from different parts of the country participated in this programme and benefited from it.
Sudarshan Mogasale, CEO of 3DPLM software in the inaugural speech spoke about several Academia connect programs being run by the company in which the primary interest is to help academia in India embrace new technologies and strengthen the education system in India. He stressed that instead of teaching feature / functions of outdated CAD / PLM systems in CAD/CAM labs, Academia should focus on holistic & state of art Industry Solution Experiences from Dassault Systèmes and prepare students for their future career in Industries
During the four days of FEAT professors were trained on the latest modelling Techniques, Systems Engineering, Digital Manufacturing & Simulations. As part of FEAT, industry visit was arranged for the participating professors, to help them to experience how industries are adopting and implementing these technologies. It was very novel experience for the academic fraternity.
Professor Arun Manohar from Centurion University, who was one of the professors attending this event remarked – “I am happy being part of FEAT and it was a great learning experience from day one. The knowledge gained by me will provide me an edge and I will be better placed to guide the students to use 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is not only for students from mechanical engineering branch, but other branches also”. Professor Manohar also lauded the initiative taken by 3DPLM Software and Dassault Systèmes India to launch Academia Connect online forum where educators all across India will be able to connect with each other and share the work done by students and teachers.
