The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) said last week it received a $1.625 million gift from CoreTech System Co., Ltd. (Moldex3D) to support research and education.
“As the world’s largest independent CAE (computer-aided engineering) software developer, we are truly pleased for the opportunity to partner with Clemson University, which has one of the most elite automotive engineering programs in the world, to help students gain more practical hands-on CAE experiences and further equip them with a viable simulation ability to compete in the future job market,” Moldex3D Northern America President Anthony Yang said.
The gift includes 25 sets of the latest Moldex3D Advanced package and solution added-on module, including Fiber and MuCell, that will provide hands-on training to students, professionals and faculty.
“I am thrilled to have Moldex3D as the newest corporate partner for CU-ICAR, and I thank them for their support,” said Clemson University President James Clements. “They are true industry leaders, and I know that our students and faculty in automotive engineering will benefit greatly from being able to use and learn from their software.”
The Moldex3D gift is a part of Clemson’s The Will to Lead capital campaign to raise $1 billion to provide Clemson students and faculty with scholarships, facilities, professorships, technology and enhanced learning and research opportunities.
