Prairie View Students to Benefit from $60 Million Computer Systems Donation. (Tech Briefs)


Roach, Ronald, Black Issues in Higher Education


PRAIRIE VIEW, TEXAS

General Motors Corp., Sun Microsystems and EDS have donated more than $60 million in computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software, hardware, and training expertise to Prairie View A&M University.

This corporate alliance initiative, known as the Partners for the Advancement of CAD/CAM/CAE Education (PACE), was launched in 1999 to help provide future engineers from key institutions with the education and experience desired by each of the partnering corporations.

"The technology that PACE has donated represents the future of engineering and design. Our industry demands that we move quickly and deliver unsurpassed quality, reliability and durability in every product that rolls off the line," says Jerry Gibbs, GM executive director of North America Product Development Quality.

PACE creates networks for research, curriculum development, textbook development and other forms of collaboration between GM, Sun Microsystems, EDS and academia. In addition to the hardware, software and training donated by the three core partners, PACE institutions receive a substantial contribution of ADAMS (Automatic Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems) software from Mechanical Dynamics Inc.
