Dassault Systemes, a European multinational software company specializing in 3D design, 3D digital mock-up, and product lifecycle management (PLM) software has recognized Prescott's College of Engineering as a CATIA (Computer-Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) Academy member and CATIA Certification Center.
"This recognition of Embry-Riddle Prescott is a great honor and is a result of the excellent work of our faculty," said Dr. Ron Madler, Dean of the College of Engineering. "Dr. Iacopo Gentilini has been a leader on campus in utilizing CATIA and engaging Dassault which has led to us to become only the 6th Academy member in North America and the only Certification Center in Arizona."
Being an Academy member will allow the College to access to tutorials and learning tools that are only provided to a few select schools. The CATIA Certification allows the College to provide CATIA Certification exams through Dassault, thereby providing students with a chance to gain that distinction. Additionally, the College can provide the exams to engineers in industry, allowing Embry-Riddle to gain further visibility in the aerospace community.
