The PACE Program

This corporate alliance initiative, titled Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education (PACE), was formed in 1999 to help provide future engineers from key institutions with the education and experience desired by each of the partnering corporations. PACE creates opportunities for research, curriculum development, courseware development and other forms of collaboration between GM, Sun Microsystems, EDS and academia. In addition to the hardware, software and training donated by the three core partners, PACE institutions receive substantial contributions of software from MSC.Software Corp. of Santa Ana, California and Altair Engineering of Troy, Michigan.

PACE has contributed more than US$1.8 Billion to 23 universities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and Germany.

PACE has contributed more than US$254 Million to Virginia Tech, including in-kind gifts of Unigraphics software, ADAMS software, Altair HyperWorks software, E-factory software, and Sun workstations.
