Why Teach Using Ansys?

The demand for graduates with engineering simulation skills continues to rise, largely due to the widespread use of simulation across product development and optimization workflows. The need for these graduates exceeds the supply, which is why Ansys is committed to working with educators to provide flexible academic tools. Ansys provides industry-leading tools designed to empower educators, making it possible to provide a hands-on education to students and give them a competitive edge as they enter their industry.

Simulation benefits students across STEM, undergraduate, graduate and post-doctorate programs. With Ansys tools, students can learn complex concepts quickly and become job-ready before they graduate, saving employers on training and lost productivity.

Rethinking Engineering Curricula to Meet Industry Demand

Keeping educational curricula relevant is difficult when 85% of the jobs that today’s students will hold in 2030 haven’t been created yet. To explore the academic-industry disconnect, Ansys focused on two electrical engineering disciplines: antenna and RF component/systems design. Through interviews with industry experts, we investigate what universities are and aren’t doing to ease the shortage of trained engineers.
