Dassault Systèmes and ISAE Group, which comprises the six leading aerospace engineering schools in France, announce their partnership to develop student skills in the latest digital practices used by the aerospace industry. ISAE Group will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform in its training programs for 7,000 students.
The agreement was signed at the Paris Air Show by Olivier Lesbre, president, ISAE Group, and Florence Verzelen, executive vice president, Industry, Marketing & Sustainability, Dassault Systèmes.
The aerospace industry is undergoing great change: decarbonization of air transport, growing needs for Earth observation, defense, security and communication, and increased development in the drone and space sectors. In response to these challenges and opportunities, the ecosystem is undergoing digital transformation.
In light of this change, higher education institutions must help their students acquire the skills related to these new practices, the organizations report. Through its partnership with Dassault Systèmes, ISAE Group will integrate the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and Dassault Systèmes’ applications into its teaching to achieve the training objectives set by its schools.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its applications are used to create virtual twins of products and manage their life cycle. It includes project management, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, systems engineering and structural calculations. It also includes immersive technologies and the simulation of fluids, complex systems, multiphysics systems and manufacturing processes, as well as the representation and planning of assembly lines and industry 4.0 factories.
The partnership will provide Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Edu team and ISAE Group’s schools with a framework for close collaboration on adopting capabilities in all curricula, establishing certification programs, and providing learning, research and support for ISAE Group’s startups.
“We are delighted to partner with Dassault Systèmes. This is testimony to our joint commitment to the development of knowledge and skills that will enable the digital transformation of the aerospace industry. By embedding teaching methods in the digital-driven dynamic, we are also responding to the expectations of our future students as well as manufacturers in the industry,” says Lesbre of ISAE Group.
“ISAE plays a key role in the training ecosystem in France. Our partnership will enable us to create a strong link between this ecosystem and aerospace industry manufacturers, thanks to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform,” says Verzelen of Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is widely deployed across the industry. It provides an innovative and dynamic learning environment specially adapted to the scale of a network of schools for leveraging and sharing best practices in teaching.”
