“The training taught me the best way to get from point A to point B.” Suraj, a student from SJCE, India said. “If there are a hundred ways of doing something, what is more efficient way to get there was taught in the NX training.”

Eight students and two faculty members completed and received certificate for Tecnomatix. They learned the functions of digital manufacturing tools to enable collaborative project. After completing the training, they can create and perform robotic and human simulations.

“I liked the training…because I think it is a useful software that can help someone on the market effectively and someone that is working on the project like RSMS,” Lais from University of Sao Paulo said.
