NEW YORK - Jun 14, 2017
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with the University of Perpignan Via Domitia (UPVD). The partnership allows the institution, which has an excellent international reputation, to associate its leading course in the University Institute of Technology (UIT) with a leading solution dedicated to the maintenance of equipment and assets of a company in highly technical and complex environments.
The University of Perpignan Via Domitia (UPVD) is a multidisciplinary institution that welcomes 9,500 students each year and works closely with local and international industry players. It has chosen to partner with lnfor's Education Alliance program (EAP) and to integrate Infor's Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution into its academic program in two specific courses: Facility Engineering and Maintenance; Maintenance applied to the treatment of pollution.
"This partnership allows students to acquire the skills that employers are seeking through teaching within the framework of real industrial projects with major challenges in terms of maintenance, safety, renewable energy, etc., such as projects carried out by SNCF Réseau and ADIF (Administrator of the Spanish national rail network)," said Daniel Sacco, Director of the University Institute of Technology.
"The fact that our students in the Industrial Engineering and Maintenance department now have access to advanced solutions provided by lnfor is an essential element of their integration into the professional world," added Robert Jaulent, Associate Professor, UPVD / IUT. "They can now learn by classroom practice and then in business projects, combining their theoretical knowledge with a practical reality with a strong innovative component."
"The possibility of being able to associate ourselves with institutions as prestigious as the University of Perpignan Via Domitia and its industrial partners allows us to demonstrate to what extent expertise and technological innovation are essential to meeting the demands of industrialists confronted with the management of their increasingly complex equipment and assets, and how important it is to include learning solutions for the training of future professionals who will have to respond to these requirements quickly and efficiently," Mark Stewart, Director of the Infor Education Alliance Program, EMEA, Infor.
