Students Simulate to Win — Design Contest

Calling all competitive student design teams: Here’s a chance to showcase your simulation-aided design work. Enter the design competition for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Orlando, Florida. The winning team will receive a trip for up to four of its team members, including flight, hotel, food and a day at the Disney Theme Park of your choice.

To enter, your team must create a one-minute video demonstrating how ANSYS simulation helped solve an engineering challenge related to your design. The more creative, eye-catching and fun your video is — the better! Although optional, we would also love to see images of your team members, completed design and simulation.
