Lectra Systems develops software and hardware for organizations that use soft materials in industries including fashion and apparel, automotive, and furniture.
Lectra Systems manufactures cutting tables that either use a blade or a laser.
Lectra Systems has over 23,000 clients in over 100 countries. At Lectra Systems I was able to understand the meaning of being a global citizen because they communicate with people from all over the world. This means they are able to work in teams of very diverse cultures, opinions, and experiences.
I encourage every student to take advantage of an opportunity like this if they ever come across one. On this tour we networked with employees, experienced a global team in action, and visited the manufacturing facility to see first-hand where the product was made…If that’s not cool enough, we even got to see a demo of how the software they develop and the hardware they create work together to produce their clients’ needs.
