About Us


About Us

If you’ve ever seen a rocket launch, flown on an airplane, driven a car, used a computer, touched a mobile device, crossed a bridge, or put on wearable technology, chances are you’ve used a product where ANSYS software played a critical role in its creation. ANSYS is the global leader in engineering simulation. We help the world’s most innovative companies deliver radically better products to their customers. By offering the best and broadest portfolio of engineering simulation software, we help them solve the most complex design challenges and engineer products limited only by imagination.


Realize Your Product Promise

Who We Are

Who We Are

Founded in 1970, ANSYS employs nearly 3,000 professionals, many of whom are expert M.S. and Ph.D.-level engineers in finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics, semiconductors, embedded software and design optimization. Our exceptional staff is passionate about pushing the limits of world-class simulation technology so our customers can turn their design concepts into successful, innovative products faster and at lower cost.  As a measure of our success in attaining these goals, ANSYS has been recognized as one of the world's most innovative companies by prestigious publications such as Bloomberg Businessweek and FORTUNE magazines.

What We Do

Engineering simulation is our sole focus. For more than 45 years, we have consistently advanced this technology to meet evolving customer needs.
ANSYS develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software used to predict how product designs will behave in real-world environments. We continually advance simulation solutions by

  • Developing or acquiring the very best technologies
  • Integrating them into a unified simulation platform capable of complex, multiphysics solutions
  • Providing system services, including high-performance computing (HPC) and Cloud solutions, to manage simulation processes and data

More than 40,000 customers worldwide use ANSYS solutions, including 96 of the top 100 industrial companies on the FORTUNE 500 list. They represent a wide range of industries: aerospace, automotive, defense, electronics, energy, materials and chemical processing, turbomachinery, consumer products, healthcare, sports and many others.

These customers are designing new rockets for space exploration, autonomous automobiles, advanced implantable medical devices and patient-specific treatment procedures, supersonic trains, more efficient wind turbines and solar energy solutions, ever-smaller electronics for smartphones and computers, and embedded software for devices comprising the Internet of Things — to name only a few applications.

Where We Are

Since its founding, ANSYS has evolved from a single office that housed a small group of engineers to an international corporation with offices on three continents.

ANSYS is headquartered in the United States, south of Pittsburgh in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. We have more than 75 strategic sales locations throughout the world with a network of channel partners in 40+ countries. Together the company fosters close partnerships with customers and provides local value-added service and support.

Simulation-Driven Product Development

By helping our customers verify how their new products will work before ever making a prototype, we save them time and money. Perhaps more importantly, we give them confidence that their products will perform flawlessly in service — an invaluable business asset. We call this process Simulation-Driven Product Development.

The ANSYS suite spans the entire range of physics, so no product design challenge is beyond our capabilities. Our software not only delivers efficiency, it drives innovation. It reduces or eliminates physical constraints, enabling simulated tests that might otherwise not be possible. It also fosters what-if thinking, so engineers can readily explore design alternatives for an optimal solution. Because our software enables you to test thousands of designs in the time it used to take to build a single prototype, the possibilities are endless. But when this exploration is done, Simulation-Driven Product Development will steer you to the single, best solution.
