YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Siemens Corporation is making a $440 million dollar in-kind grant to Youngstown State University. The grant will provide state-of-the-art software and training to the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

STEM College Dean Martin Abraham says this grant "just moved our students from being very good engineering and science students to the best in the world." 

The grant was announced at YSU by Siemens President and CEO, Eric Spiegel, who just happens to be a Mahoning Valley native and graduate of Poland Seminary High School.  

"Seeing the revitalization of Youngstown, the addition of the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) and YSU's focus on STEM, it is clear that Youngstown is once again at the forefront of innovation and technology, and I'm so proud that Siemens will conttibute to its success" Spiegel told the audience at YSU.

The Siemens software and training will put YSU students on the cutting edge of advanced manufacturing and make them highly recruited by global companies.

YSU President Dr. Cynthia Anderson says now becomes a destination university for students seeking advanced degrees in engineering and materials manufacturing.
