The Partnership for the Advancement of CAD/CAM/CAE Education (PACE) is an alliance between General Motors, EDS, Unigraphics Solutions, and Sun Microsystems. Its mission is to integrate math-based, three-dimensional solid modeling—using Unigraphics—into the engineering and design curricula of strategically selected academic institutions worldwide. The PACE Partners are especially committed to working with its academic partners to prepare a new kind of engineer for industry—a design engineer who can engineer and design products, and even perform first-order analysis using parametrics-based software tools. This paper/presentation describes the attributes of the PACE program, and a panel of PACE university partner representatives will share their learnings and insights.
