London, Ontario - Fanshawe is pleased to announce a new academic partnership with Siemens Canada that will provide learning opportunities for the College's Advanced Ergonomic Studies students.

Jack is a leading-edge human modeling and simulation program that is considered industry standard. While using the software, students will design products and evaluate industrial tasks that are meant to improve user comfort and reduce musculoskeletal injuries.

"This investment from Siemens ensures our students are well prepared for relevant and rewarding careers upon graduation," says Fanshawe President Peter Devlin. "We thank Siemens for its continued support of Fanshawe and helping us unlock the potential of our students."

By utilizing Siemens' PLM Software for course work, research and other academic studies, Fanshawe students will have the opportunity to develop the advanced skills required by the more than 77,000 global customers who already utilize Siemens' software and technology solutions. Tecnomatix is leveraged by more than five million users worldwide.

"On behalf of our students, I thank Siemens Canada for this in-kind grant."
