Siemens Donates to YSU

YSU Campus

Siemens, the electronics and electrical engineering company, on Wednesday donated $440 million to Youngstown State University students working with the National Additive Manufacturing Institute.

The company, whose Chief Executive Officer Eric Spiegel is a Mahoning Valley native, donated the “in-kind grant” for students in the advanced manufacturing and engineering jobs that work with NAMII.

The grant will specifically go to the YSU College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to provide its students with state-of-the-art product lifecycle management software and training.

The software will be used to prepare them for careers in additive manufacturing, computer-aided engineering, and robotics design for the automotive, defense, energy, high-tech electronics, machinery and aerospace industries.
