PACE

"PACE, Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education, is a partnership between General Motors, Siemens PLM Software, Autodesk, Hewlett Packard and Oracle to support strategically-selected academic institutions worldwide. The PACE mission is to develop the automotive Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) team of the future, by closing the gap between engineering education and practice. PLM is an integrated digital/parametric-based approach to a product’s lifecycle, from design inception through manufacture, marketing, distribution, maintenance and into recycling, disposal, reuse, and sustainability.

The PACE focus is on relationship outcomes with a positive impact for the PACE Institutions, and a long-term collaborative relationship between academia and industry. The continuing stamina of PACE is demonstrated by the high degree of PACE company commitment to PACE Institutions, PACE Faculty, PACE Students, and ultimately the PACE Mission"
