the CERN Accelerator and Technical sector as
well as the infrastructure on which CERN's Engineering Data Management
Service (EDMS) is run.
- Support of a wide range of Engineering software packages including tools
for Mechanical, Electronic and Software Design. Support of Math tools, software development and documentation
