With the in-kind grant of Siemens Tecnomatix® portfolio, the industry leading digital manufacturing software, BeehiveFund’s training offerings will now have the same technology that companies around the world depend on every day to develop innovative products in a wide variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, machinery, shipbuilding, high-tech electronics, medical devices, food, and many more.
Dr. Sanju Patro, Director of BeehiveFund's TMAC Gulf Coast program, is grateful to Siemens PLM Software for this generous grant of advanced engineering software. This partnership enables BeehiveFund to meet the needs of employers and prepare the future workforce for these significant high-paying STEM careers. Dr. Patro believes that with this invaluable assistance, BeehiveFund will be better able to pursue its mission of disseminating technical knowledge across all industries.
