In a highly competitive international field where environmental, human and economic concerns are at the forefront, the growing demand for improved performance of automatic systems and automated equipment has led to a number of developments that demand extensive knowledge of conventional technologies, as well as high-level competencies in new technologies.
Mechatronics Concept Designer
In the framework of the partnership, students in the Design and Production of Automatic Systems (CRSA) department gained access to the latest Siemens solutions to design the automated systems of tomorrow more rapidly and more efficiently. They fully benefit from synergies between Siemens PLM Software solutions and Siemens automation solutions.
Since the signing of the partnership in January 2012, second-year students have been able to use Siemens solutions to accomplish their industrial project: Mechatronics Concept Designer from the NX™ production suite for the design of the operative part, and the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal for the design of the control part, where both solutions communicate via an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) for Process Control (OPC) server.
