"Changing the way engineering is done throughout the world" celebration to take place at UC
International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI) is pleased to be a sponsor, along with Siemens and UC, of the Structural Dynamics Research Corporation (SDRC) 50th Anniversary Alumni Reunion being held September 9th and 10th at the University of Cincinnati (UC) and The Golf Club at Stonelick Hills.
ITI’s founder, the late Dr. Jason “Jack” Lemon, along with several other members of UC’s staff, founded SDRC in 1967. By the early 1980s, Milford, Ohio-based SDRC grew in size and influence to become a global business of approximately 300 employees. SDRC quickly became the internationally recognized leader in CAE/CAD/PDM engineering and application software development. Later, SDRC was owned by EDS Corporation, followed by UGS. In 2007 the company was acquired by Siemens, one of Germany’s largest conglomerates.
In addition to ITI, many technology companies and key executives have their roots in SDRC. Over 200 technology companies have spun out of SDRC, making it one of the most prolific high-tech startups in the world and a significant influencer in the engineering industry worldwide. SDRC Alumni and everyone from the extended SDRC family are invited to attend the two-day reunion, which kicks off Saturday, September 9th at 3:00pm in the UC CEAS Learning Center and includes Siemens Technology Showcase and Lab tours. At 6:00pm an Alumni Reception will be held at UC’s Nippert Stadium in the West Pavilion.
On Sunday the Lemon/Farrell SDRC Classic Golf Outing will take place at The Golf Club at Stonelick Hills in Batavia, Ohio at 9:00am. A Nineteenth Hole Social will be held at 2:00pm. Non-golfers are welcome to join the party, where a memorial will be presented honoring the late SDRC co-founder, Robert M. Farrell.
Farrell spearheaded the SDRC 50th Anniversary Reunion celebration until his untimely death on July 4, 2017. Planning of the event carried on through SDRC colleague, Ed Carl. “Bob’s passion for the SDRC 50th Anniversary Reunion can’t be matched,” stated Carl. “We appreciate the help of ITI, Siemens, and the UC College of Engineering for ensuring the success of this important event. Bob’s spirit will surely be missed, and we look forward to honoring his life and work during our celebration.”
Mike Lemon, son of Dr. Lemon and Chairman of ITI commented, “Bringing together former SDRC colleagues and everyone from the extended family at the UC CEAS Learning Center will be an incredible chance to connect the future of engineering with the rich past of SDRC.”
