UTA engineering school gets software donation

RICHARDSON, TX – (DALLAS BUSINESS JOURNAL) April 8, 2002 Two Richardson technical-service providers have donated $36,000 in software and user licenses to the University of Texas at Arlington’s engineering school.

The software, donated by InfoVision and VirtualE3D, allows several mechanical engineers to simultaneously view and make changes to a design.

Called VCollab, the product is used in virtual-reality designs and nanotechnology, the science of constructing materials at the atomic level. Among its capabilities, VCollab can simulate movements of the human heart and airflow around a car that’s still on the drawing board

The software was donated to T.C. Yih, a mechanical-engineering professor, and his researchers, who are designing and manufacturing mechanical devices and instruments.
