ANSYS academic partnerships are designed to provide benefits to all stakeholders: students, academics, educational institutions, industry and ANSYS. Students become part of the CAE community through real-world project participation; professors can further their academic careers via broad exposure to industry and applications.

Academic partners share their successes through ANSYS Advantage articles, updates on this website, technical journal articles, conference presentations and similar published materials. ANSYS currently has more than 150 academic partnerships around the world.

For example, in the area of renewable energy and energy efficiency, ANSYS sponsors several student teams participating in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon, a solar house design and efficiency competition. As another case in point, the General Motors (GM) PACE program incorporates software from ANSYS to train tomorrow’s automotive engineers.
