The demand for graduates with engineering simulation skills is exploding. This is largely due to the widespread use of simulation across product development and optimization workflows. And, because the demand for these graduates exceeds the supply, industry is looking to academia to help close the skills gap. Simulation benefits students — in STEM, undergraduate, graduate and postdoc programs — as well as industry. Students learn complex concepts more quickly and are job-ready when they graduate, which saves employers big bucks on training and lost productivity.

Paired with simulation, materials science education offers additional benefits. It is an important cross-disciplinary topic in engineering, science and design. Ansys is committed to working with academia to provide flexible solutions for all users. We offer low-cost, high-performance bundles of simulation software, including structural, thermal, fluid dynamics, electronics and multiphysics solvers, plus Ansys Workbench, CAD import tools, solids modeling, advanced meshing and post-processing functionality. Additionally, we offer a unique set of teaching resources to support materials education.
