Training The Next Generation Of Engineers With ANSYS

Campus-wide solutions equip future engineers with advanced engineering skills to tackle real-world problems

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 9, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — As engineering students across the globe return to the classroom, more and more of them will learn to harness the power of ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) simulation software – the same tools that they'll be expected to use in their future careers. A growing number of schools – including the University of Bath, the Technical University of Hamburg, Georgia Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the University of Tulsa, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Iowa State University, National Institute of Technology Rourkela and North Carolina State University – are offering all of their engineering students access to ANSYS technology through a campus-wide solution.

With campus-wide solutions, access to ANSYS® software is centrally procured at a university. It replaces individual department licenses with a broad, multi-user one, so most universities are able to increase license capacity and access to all necessary physics, while leveraging the cost advantages of a volume purchase. The arrangement creates an ideal academic environment for broader adoption of engineering simulation — one in which software is scaled for easy, cost-effective application by a wide range of users, across multiple faculties, students and researchers.

"Investing in the ANSYS campus license has provided our students and researchers additional functionality and improved availability that will further enhance the ANSYS experience for our engineering community," said Jyoti Patel and Steven Chapman at the University of Bath. "In particular, the enhanced HPC license package will enable our researchers to compute more-complex and more-realistic systems. Such advancements put our engineering community in a unique position."

ANSYS campus-wide licensing is multidisciplinary, reflecting the real-world nature of engineering problems. It contains fluids, structures and electronics suites that extend into research areas such as electric machine design, high-frequency electronics design and device power management.

"Having multiphysics capability will allow us to explore interdisciplinary problems, such as those involving both electromagnetics and heat transfer," said Daniel D. Stancil, Alcoa Distinguished Professor and head, department of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University. "The generous provision of teaching licenses opens up possibilities for new course development, and several of our faculty already make extensive use of the solvers in their research."

"Worldwide, engineering simulation has become a major component of research and education," said Sunil Kumar Sarangi, director, National Institute of Technology Rourkela. "ANSYS multiphysics software enables high-end simulation of real systems and trains would-be professionals in the art. As a leading institute of higher learning in India, NIT Rourkela has deployed ANSYS campus-wide license with a visible impact on the quality of education and research."

The earlier that entry-level engineers can play active roles in simulation-driven product development, the greater their value to an engineering organization.

"On campus, ANSYS solutions give students great opportunity to learn skills that future employers require, improving placements," said Murali Kadiramangalam, director of the academic program at ANSYS. "At the world's leading engineering schools, our campus-wide multiphysics solutions have proven their value not only in delivering the highest-quality, most relevant education to students — but also in supporting the kind of outstanding research that attracts funding, while helping to tighten university-industry collaboration."
