BATON ROUGE, La. and PLANO, Texas – UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced a partnership with East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Melvin L. “Kip” Holden for the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, City of Baker Schools System and the Zachary Community Schools. The partnership provides an in-kind software grant of UGS’ Solid Edge® software with a list price, commercial value of $307 million to 53 schools in three school districts directly impacted by an increased student population as a result of the historic Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
“With this software, we’re able to train students for tomorrow’s jobs on the best engineering design software available,” said Holden. “Our rebuilding efforts are now catapulted into an effort to invest for the future of our region because this software will help us rebuild and train now and in the future.”
“We are pleased to partner with these schools in an effort to rebuild after the historic storms of 2005,” said Dave Shirk, executive vice president, Global Marketing, UGS. “Our goal is to help the region retain top notch student talent to continue with the great efforts already underway to engage in community redevelopment and ultimately rebuild neighborhoods.”
The software will be used in mathematics, science, art and design as well as technical courses throughout various grade levels, beginning with third grade. The in-kind grant will benefit approximately 50,000 students throughout the Baton Rouge Parish. Students involved in the career and technical education classes will use the software to simulate an endless number of work-related processes to provide them with valuable experiences in advance of acquiring jobs in their respective fields.
