Mentor Graphics FloEFD Technology Selected for New French Automotive Lighting Master's Degree Program

WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 12, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced its partnership of the master's degree program on automotive Embedded Lighting Systems (ELS). Three French universities, the Institut d'Optique Graduate School, ESTACA and Strate Ecole de design, in partnership with Renault, Peugeot-Citroen, Valeo and Automotive Lighting, developed the ELS program. Mentor Graphics' leading front-loading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) FloEFD™ product has been selected as part of the curriculum.

Mentor Graphics industry-leading FloEFD CAD-embedded product will be part of the curriculum for the new master's degree program on automotive Embedded Lighting Systems (ELS) in France where students can evaluate thermal performance early during the design phase.

The master's degree program consists of 14 modules offered in a six-month period, followed by an internship and thesis. Taught in English, the program covers design to production, focusing on technologies and methodologies used for embedded lighting: optics and photonics, systems, simulation, mechatronics and design. Mentor Graphics® FloEFD technology will be featured in the simulation track, used for both education and research. As an industry-leading CAD-embedded solution, the FloEFD product will provide front-loaded CFD so students can evaluate thermal performance early during the design phase. As a fast, feature-rich, and easy-to-use CFD tool, students will learn how to calculate condensation, meshing technologies, radiation modeling using Monte Carlo analysis, and apply reliable physics models to their designs.

"As a sponsor of this program and a user of Mentor's FloEFD product, we are pleased to be part of this much-needed master's degree program," stated Mohamed L'Baouch, Director R&D at Automotive Lighting France. "This program will help future automotive lighting systems designers understand the complexities and use the most progressive technologies to develop innovative lighting solutions, while seeding the future with new talent."

The three universities will provide specialized courses: Institut d'Optique Graduate School will offer courses on optics and photonics; ESTACA will provide transportation engineering instruction; and Strate Ecole de design will cover design. The automotive industry partners supporting this master's program recognize the importance of this specialty and the training will enable the students to master technical skills in the emerging automotive lighting market.

"We are very pleased to be involved with this program since it fills a void for automotive systems education," stated Jean-Paul Ravier, ELS Chair at Institut d'Optique Graduate School. "FloEFD is uniquely positioned as a best-in-class analysis product for automotive lighting design; as a result our graduating students will be able to step in and fulfill the needs of the automotive industry immediately upon graduation."

The FloEFD tool helps design engineers conduct CFD analysis early during the design process. Since FloEFD is embedded in the most popular CAD programs and offers intelligent technology to help the user set up and analyze problems quickly, it helps reduce overall time to a solution by as much as 65-75% compared to traditional methods and products. Both the CATIA V5 and Siemens NX versions of the FloEFD product will be used for training. The six-month accelerated master's degree program costs 13,000 Euros ($14,400 USD).

"We are honored to have FloEFD selected for this special automotive lighting master's degree program," stated Roland Feldhinkel, general manager, Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division. "Our market-leading FloEFD product has proven to be an invaluable technology for our automotive customers, and the students will be able to realize improved product quality, reliability and faster time-to-market when using this tool."
