San Jose, CA. July 27, 2016
The United States Technical Education Center (USTEC) launched its first cohort of students last week. USTEC is a non-profit organization located in the Bay Area that promotes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) literacy and careers by providing technical training and employment assistance to underserved communities and traditionally underrepresented demographics, with a special emphasis on veterans.
This program was made possible by a generous donation from the Silicon Valley product design firm,
Design Visionaries and a $108 million in-kind grant from Siemens PLM Software for NXTM software, a
leading integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering
By using the same technology in the classroom that is used by companies all over
the world to develop a wide variety of products, USTEC students are gaining important real-world
experience during their studies that will serve them well after graduation.
Siemens PLM Software is dedicated to helping develop the next generation of highly trained and highly qualified engineers and technologists. Our academic partnership with USTEC encourages students to pursue careers that will revitalize manufacturing in the U.S. and around the world.
