Siemens makes large in-kind gift to Howard
Howard University will get a series of software grants valued at $150 million from Siemens PLM Software, a division of the Siemens Industry Automation Division.
It is the largest chunk of grants the D.C. university has received and they will help strengthen the school's engineering curriculum.
The Plano, Texas-based provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services made the grant announcement in conjunction with the Business Software Alliance CEO Forum in D.C.
The grants, aimed to help educate future PLM engineers and technologists, are for engineering software and student and instructor training and specialized certification programs.
Siemens PLM Software provides PLM technology to more than a million students each year at nearly 10,200 global institutions.
