UCF and Siemens Unveil State of the Art Lab to Turn Students into Digital Grid Tech Experts

This comprehensive program builds upon a decades-long strategic partnership with UCF, focused on fostering innovation, advancing technology and developing the next-generation workforce.

“For decades, Siemens has grown to be one of Orlando’s largest employers with a strong commitment to our community and a long history of collaborating with our hometown university, UCF,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “Like the many other successful partnerships forged between Siemens and UCF, the new Digital Smart Grid Lab supports the City’s continued efforts to make Orlando a national leader in sustainability, in training the next generation of high-tech workers and helping create high-wage jobs in emerging career fields."

This past fall, Siemens provided UCF with an in-kind grant of product lifecycle management software with a commercial value of $68 million – marking the largest grant in university history. For more than three decades, Siemens has called the Orlando area home, with a nearly 5,000-employee footprint spanning power generation, transmission and distribution, energy-efficient buildings and infrastructure, medical imaging and healthcare diagnostics.
