AVEVA Marine is a set of integrated applications created for the engineering and design of ship and offshore structures, design management, and the generation of production information.
The agreement with Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) provides AVEVA PDMS (plant) and AVEVA Outfitting (marine) software licenses for use in its engineering degree programmes.
AVEVA will also provide AVEVA Outfitting software licenses to the Federal University of Pará (UFPA) for use in naval architecture, hydrodynamics, naval construction and the stability disciplines for its naval engineering degree programmes.
AVEVA will also assist UFPA with the training of teachers to undertake the classes.
"With engineering skill shortages in Brazil specifically and Latin America in general, training new users of our software is critical to the growth and on-going success of the plant and marine sectors," said Santiago Pena, senior vice president of AVEVA Latin America.
"In response, we have taken steps to establish several partnerships with educational institutions across the country to help close the gap on the shortage of experienced engineering talent."
