—John Stuart, senior vice president, global education, PTC
PTC’s leadership gift to the Create the Future campaign is valued at $24.1 million.
This gift will foster collaborative educational experiences between Florida Tech’s Nathan M. Bisk College of Business and the College of Engineering.
PTC donated PTC Windchill® software for product lifestyle management process requirements and PTC Creo® software for CAD design to provide an environment for students to design, test and simulate the entire lifecycle associated with bringing new products to market. The PTC donation will form the core of Florida Tech’s Center for Lifecycle and Innovation Management and will be integrated into the management information systems curriculum.
Additionally, PTC is providing 20 scholarships for students who want to develop expertise in PTC Creo and PTC Windchill business and system administration.
