HUNTSVILLE, Ala., January 15, 2013 – Intergraph® has entered into an educational program agreement with Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (BUAP), the largest state-owned university in the state of Puebla, Mexico, to train students and instructors from the Superior Studies of Engineering and Technology Division using Intergraph’s best-in-class SmartPlant® Enterprise plant design solutions.

Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla is the first university in Mexico to sign this type of agreement with Intergraph. The three-year agreement was officially signed during a conference on campus. Honor witnesses included representatives from Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) – the state-owned oil and gas company – and several major engineering, procurement and construction firms, including ICA Fluor, CH2M Hill, Uhde Engineering, Jacobs Engineering and III/SENER.

Mexico City-based PEMEX expects to build several more plants in the future and wants Mexican universities to be able to provide more and better-prepared engineers. BUAP chose Intergraph software to instruct students using state-of-the-art plant design technology that will allow them to make an immediate impact with owner operators and EPCs upon graduation.

BUAP faculty initially will be trained with Intergraph’s SmartPlant P&ID, the No. 1 asset-centric, rule-driven P&ID solution in the global market, so it can be included as part of the master’s degree assignment in chemical engineering. The university also intends to soon start training teachers and engineering students using these Intergraph solutions: SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant 3D, SmartSketch®, SmartPlant Electrical and SmartPlant Instrumentation.

María Auxilio Osorio, Director of Chemical Engineering faculty at BUAP, said, “Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla takes pride in the ability to provide the finest educational tools available and prepare students to be the best possible engineers as they enter the work force. It’s well known that Intergraph has the most advanced solutions available to owner operators and EPCs, and training with these products better prepares our graduates for their careers in engineering.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “Intergraph is honored to partner with Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla to help the next generation of engineers be prepared to develop and design industrial plants using state-of-the-art technology. BUAP’s decision to integrate Intergraph solutions into the engineering curriculum will enable its graduates to gain expertise for increased productivity and enhanced competitiveness in the labor force.”

Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise offers a powerful portfolio of industry-leading, best-in-class design and data management solutions, enabling companies in the process, power, and marine industries to capture integrated engineering knowledge at the enterprise level for the competitive advantage needed in today’s and tomorrow’s market. SmartPlant Enterprise’s integrated suite of solutions enable proven productivity gains, improving engineering efficiency by up to 30 percent. This is why the majority of plants built worldwide are designed using Intergraph solutions.

The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph as the No. 1 overall worldwide provider of engineering design solutions for industry according to its “Engineering Design Tools for Industry and Infrastructure Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2016.”
