Vibrant Gujarat: Dassault partners with Indus University to set up CLIC centre in campus

Dassault Systemes, the world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock-up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced that it has signed an MoU with Indus University, Ahmedabad. The MoU will facilitate setting up of a Collaborative Learning and Innovation Centre(CLIC) at the University.

CLIC will allow students to use Dassault Systèmes V6 Technologies along with LEGO Mindstorms, and ARDUINO Micro-Controller to build cyber-physical projects that will answer problems through inter-disciplinary engineering and management approaches.

CLIC will encourage students to experiment with real life and industry scenarios by creating an environment of experiential learning through 'problem-based-learning' among students, faculty members and working professionals. It will make use of world-class resources that promote multi-disciplinary engineering for efficient product and process development.

CLIC will comprehensively offer skills-enhancement and academic projects on Product Designing & Engineering, Systems Engineering, Modern Materials (Plastics & Composites), Manufacturing & Process Engineering, Casting & Forging Technology, Robotics & Automation and Ergonomics.

Speaking at the signing of the MoU with Dassault Systèmes, Nagesh Bhandari, President, Indus University stated, "I am delighted that CLIC will now be one of the strategic Centre of Excellence of the University. CLIC will not only be a tool for empowerment with the latest technology but also a hub of innovation as we go along. At CLIC, we intend to answer many questions and problems that confront us in the industrial world and the overall society."

According to EY's Knowledge paper on skill development in India: Learner first, India has gradually evolved as a knowledge-based economy due to the abundance of capable, flexible and qualified human capital. However, there is a need to further develop and empower the human capital to ensure the country's global competiveness.

The Government intends to achieve enrollment of 35.9 million students in higher education institutions with a Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) of 25.2 per cent by the end of the Twelfth Five Year Plan period (2012-2017) through the co-existence of multiple types of institutions, including research-centric, teaching and vocation-focused ones.

Expressing his enthusiasm at the setting up of the Centre, Dr Chandan Chowdhury, Managing Director-India, Dassault Systèmes said, "CLIC will be a tool for future professionals to equip them to become globally competitive technology professionals. India is looking to be centre stage of global development and centres like CLIC will be the reservoir for the required talent pool for the country."

"Indus Innovation Centre is working with Indus University students to create innovative enterprises. CLIC is going to lead the way to structured and learning based innovations in Indus University," said Jagat Shah, Director, Indus Innovation Centre.
 
Dassault Systèmes will offer V6 based collaborative technologies, which will help students learn crucial employability skills and create innovative projects. As Training and Projects Partner to Dassault Systèmes, ADCC InfoCAD Ltd. will be giving a dedicated and resident expert technical resource to drive the trainings on a regular basis and guide the projects with the students.
