PTC, a global platform provider for the emerging internet of things (IoT) space, is to create 50 new jobs at its newly established R&D centre in Dublin.

Roles at the operation will include DevOps engineers, cloud architects and security architects.

This is not PTC’s first investment in Ireland. The PTC Academic Program is already part of the curriculum in academic institutions, including Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Dublin Institute of Technolody (DIT), Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT Dublin), Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT), and University of Limerick (UL), all of which teach PTC’s 3D modelling software solution, Creo.

Students are prepared for their careers by learning to use the industry-standard engineering design tool commonly in place with future employers.

PTC also supports the Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), Maynooth University and Tyndall National Institute in developing smart projects using PTC’s IoT development platform, ThingWorx.
