“Newcastle University has already successfully implemented and run courses using AVEVA Hull and Initial Design, so AVEVA Outfitting was a logical addition to its programme,” said Fredy Ktourza, senior vice-president, Western Europe and Africa, AVEVA.
“We recently completed training in AVEVA Outfitting for six lecturers so that they can immediately begin using it with the students. This donation is part of AVEVA’s Academic Initiative and will help to encourage a new generation of ship designers and engineers, contributing to the future success of the whole industry.”
Approximately 70 third-year and fourth-year students will be using AVEVA Outfitting in the 2013/2014 academic year.
“This additional AVEVA software will enhance our students’ capabilities,” said Dr Kayvan Pazouki, teaching fellow in Marine Engineering, Newcastle University.
“AVEVA is helping us to equip students with the skill set needed to use one of the leading 3D design tools in the shipbuilding industry. Our students can now experience working with this industry-leading software to develop their own 3D models.”
