AVEVA's Academic Initiative to Cover 19 Korean Education Institutions


SEOUL, Mar. 2 /PRNewswire-Asia-AsiaNet/ --


    AVEVA Group plc (LSE: AVV) today announced that it is collaborating with 19 universities, colleges and industrial high

schools in Korea, that are offering courses related to marine engineering and design, throughout 2010. In 2007, the

AVEVA Academic Initiative covered 12 education institutions including Seoul National University and Busan National

University.


    South Korea's marine engineering education system is amongst the world's most progressive, with many universities

cooperating with the shipbuilding industry to keep their syllabuses industry-centric. The most recent AVEVA Academic

Initiative partners - Gyeongsang National University, Inha University and ChungNam National University are co-operating

with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, Sungdong Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and Samsung Heavy

Industries.


    SoonSup Lee, Assistant Professor, Department of Naval Architecture, Gyeongsang National University, said: "AVEVA

Marine is incorporated in 4 subjects - Computer Aided Drawing I & II, Ship Basic Calculations and Computer Aided Ship

Design. Undergraduates will get both theoretical and practical experience using AVEVA Marine when they enrol for

practical training with shipbuilders the university cooperates with."  


    Peter Finch, President, AVEVA Asia Pacific, said: "AVEVA is making our solutions accessible to students from various

levels, ensuring that the future generation of shipbuilders has core competencies using AVEVA Marine, which is the

preferred solutions provider amongst Korean yards and offshore fabricators."


    About the AVEVA Academic Initiative


    Skills shortages continue to be a challenge and it will take some time for the recent increases in the number of

engineering students at universities and technical colleges to overcome the generation gap that currently exists in the

market. 


    In recognition of this, and in addition to its own in-house graduate recruitment schemes, AVEVA works with educational

establishments and government bodies around the world to support initiatives aimed at narrowing the skills gap. 


    In particular, AVEVA works with


    a) Universities and technical institutes to promote the use of AVEVA 

       products within undergraduate courses and postgraduate research projects;

    b) Government agencies to re-skill engineers from other disciplines; 

    c) Engineering bodies to encourage school leavers to pursue careers in 

       engineering.


    AVEVA sees this as a vital investment that will bring long-term benefits to the engineering world.
