Dassault Systèmes Strengthens its Investment in Academia; Extends Partnership With CAMAQ

Students of the Virtual Environment Program get Free Access to Dassault Systèmes PLM Solutions

MONTRÉAL, April 19, 2010 - Dassault Systèmes <http://www.3ds.com/> (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, has renewed its partnership with the Centre for Aerospace Manpower Activities in Quebec (CAMAQ) for the Virtual Environment option of the Master's Degree in Aerospace Engineering. This three-year partnership allows free use of DS's entire PLM solution portfolio, including CATIA, ENOVIA, DELMIA, 3DVIA and SIMULIA. The CAMAQ lab is located at Polytechnique Montreal, under the coordination of Professor Clément Fortin, director of the Mechanical Engineering department.

In addition to access to DS solutions, students and teachers receive considerable added value by obtaining an unlimited permission to consult any DS materials online for free. At the end of the program, each student will also have the opportunity to apply for a globally recognized CATIA (DSACP) certification. CATIA certification is, in the aerospace industry, a valuable asset that will significantly improve students' job prospects.

"This partnership with the CAMAQ is very important because it concerns the continuation and expansion of Canada's aerospace workforce," commented François Bouffard, vice president, Americas, Communities and Global Affairs at Dassault Systèmes. "Based on the wide use of DS solutions in the aerospace industry, it is crucial that future generations of workers understand the state of the art solutions in this industry, which is an important sector in the Quebec economy."

"The Virtual Environment option is designed to immerse students in the reality of the field of engineering, as it is done in companies, where everything is virtually designed, tested, validated and even built before becoming real products," said Mr. Serge Tremblay, general manager of the CAMAQ. "Our partnership with Dassault Systèmes gives us a valuable access to these solutions, leaders in the industry, providing students all the tools and resources to help them carry out their projects and to prepare them for the market."

The Virtual Environment option is available to a limited number of students enrolled in one of the six universities offering the Master's Degree program in Aerospace Engineering: École Polytechnique de Montréal, École de Technologie Supérieure, Concordia University, Université Laval, McGill University and Université de Sherbrooke. The program consists of theoretical training and an engineering project: to design a pylon (including structures and systems) linking a PW305A engine to a CRJ700 aircraft fuselage. The project is submitted by three industry partners: Bell Helicopter Textron, Bombardier and Pratt & Whitney Canada.

The PLM and 3D design today constitute a compelling approach for companies in the leading sectors. DS solutions help companies to define and digitally simulate their products, processes and resources needed for their manufacture, maintenance and recycling, while preserving the environment.



CAMAQ is the nucleus bringing together the workers' and employers' representatives in the aerospace sector. More broadly, CAMAQ's mission is to foster better collaboration between employers, workers, heads of educational organizations and government stakeholders involved in labor force training and planning in the aerospace and air transport industry. http://www.camaq.org/ <http://www.camaq.org/> .
