The agreement between GE Aviation and Technical University in Prague will help the University’s Faculty of Mechanical Engineering program (CVUT) build a preventative health and maintenance monitoring system for modern turboprop engines, investigate future aerospace manufacturing technologies and enhance the education of students.
On top of the agreement, GE Aviation will provide CVUT with access to its PREDIX software, as well as training. GE Aviation will also share its technical experience related to turboprop engine design and performance modeling.
“This is a great project that connects graduate education with the industry,” said Czech Republic Prime Minister Andrej Babiš. “The partnership will support development of aerospace technologies while applying Industry 4.0 approaches. I am glad that sustainability of the project is guaranteed from the very beginning by GE Aviation. Financing is a crucial aspect.”
Czech Technical University in Prague is the oldest technical, non-military, university in the world.
