On Friday April 20 at 11 a.m., the College of Computing and Information will launch a new lecture series. The annual Bunshaft Lecture, made possible by the generosity of Al and Caryn Bunshaft, ’82, will bring prominent figures in the fields of computing and information to campus every year, to engage with our students and faculty, give us their perspectives on where the fields are going, and talk about opportunities they see, especially for students who are studying with us.
The inaugural lecture will be given by Al Bunshaft himself on Friday April 20 at 11 a.m. in the Campus Center Assembly Hall. Mr. Bunshaft is the Managing Director of Dassault Systèmes North America, and is responsible for Dassault’s North American operations. Dassault Systèmes, which by some accounts is France’s largest software company, develops 3D design systems that are transforming the way that products are designed and manufactured using digital mockups. Used by hundreds of customers, Dassault has revolutionized the entire product lifecycle from original concept to recycling for a “Who’s Who” of prestigious companies, including Ford, BMW, Boeing, Guess, Proctor & Gamble, Benneton, and GE, to name a few. Dassault Systèmes is now moving into “Social Industry 3D Experiences” and have just expanded their North American operations in a new Gold LEED-certified 27-acre campus in Waltham, Massachusetts that houses 800 employees.
