Rutgers University Creates Scalable Multiphysics Simulations Course with Ansys Student

Founded in 1908 with a sole focus in mechanical engineering, Rutgers University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department currently educates more than 700 undergraduates across both fields and simulation skills are needed now more than ever.
