PITTSBURGH, PA -- ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced a licensing and services agreement with SENAI, the National Service for Industrial Apprenticeship of Brazil. ALGOR is donating $2.2 million in licenses of its multiphysics analysis software, which will be incorporated into the educational curriculum at the SENAI units of Joinville-SC and Caxias do Sul-RS.
RCTASK, an ALGOR Authorized Reseller headquartered in Sertaozinho, Sao Paulo, Brazil, will provide services to SENAI including training and technical support.
"Having the capability to educate our students in the use of leading computer-aided engineering tools, such as ALGOR finite element analysis software, furthers our mission of advancing Brazilian industry," said Prof. Sergio Roberto Arruda, Regional Director at the SENAI unit of Joinville-SC.
"We thank and commend ALGOR and RCTASK for their generous donation of valuable software and services," said Prof. Jorge Luiz Pasqual, Director of the "Mecatronica" SENAI unit of Caxias do Sul-RS.
"Due to Brazil's rapid economic growth, use of design, analysis and simulation software is greatly increasing in the manufacturing sector," said Antonio Pedro Lourenco, Operations Manager of RCTASK. "Allowing SENAI students to learn about ALGOR software helps to better prepare them for professional engineering careers, which will help to improve the local industrial community."
"We are pleased to make this donation to SENAI and support their efforts to promote education and the use of ALGOR software in the growing Brazilian market," said John Li, Ph.D., ALGOR Director of International Business Development. "We look forward to collaborating with our partner, RCTASK, on supporting this educational program for many years to come."
