Dassault Systemes signs MoU with RMIT

Dassault Systèmes and its Australian partner, MEMKO, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University).

Under the terms of the MoU, Dassault Systèmes and MEMKO will collaborate with RMIT to develop a new Master of Engineering degree program in Computer Aided Engineering and PLM. The new course will be made available to students in January 2014.

The new degree course will incorporate use of the most advanced applications of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and include all aspects of PLM.

Students of both electrical and mechanical engineering will be able to gain V6 certifications in CATIA, ENOVIA, DELMIA, 3D VIA and SIMULIA software reinforcing their overall skill set for entry into the workforce.

Christian Ebel, Director Value Solutions, Australia and New Zealand, Dassault Systèmes, said, “Although we have relationships with many Australian universities, this is the first time that Dassault Systèmes and an Australian university are entering into a long-term collaborative agreement to develop and deliver a complete and holistic PLM education at the post-graduate level based on our 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

"We look forward to working closely with RMIT to raising the bar in driving highly qualified skills in Australia in support of tomorrow’s engineering workforce.”
