Invitation for Funded Curriculum Proposals

We invite educators to submit proposals to create innovative undergraduate engineering curricula or evolve existing courses to incorporate Ansys simulation.


Invitation for Curriculum Proposals

As part of our ongoing mission to support the teaching of engineering, science, and design, Ansys invites educators of accredited educational institutions to submit proposals to create innovative curricula or the evolution of existing courses in undergraduate engineering departments' Ansys simulation tools. The courses should combine Ansys technologies with proven teaching and assessment methods, such as active learning techniques and project-based learning, which improve and enhance education and prepare students to make an impact on day one of their careers.

Selected projects will receive a grant and relevant technical guidance for creating or evolving an existing course or set of courses. An individual course will receive up to $5,000, and for a series of courses within a university department(s), additional funds will be considered up to $25,000.

For this active invitation, Ansys will award up to $125,000. Although any proposal focused on undergraduate courses will be considered, for this round, proposals that include the incorporation of Ansys tools into multiple courses as part of a department wide or cross departmental course strategy will be prioritized.

Key Dates:

  • Proposal submissions are now open
  • Proposal submissions deadline: September 20, 2024
  • Notification of recipients: Ansys will make award announcements no later than October 25, 2024
  • Start of projects: From January 2025
  • Incorporation of curriculum: 2025-2026 academic year, as completed

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.
