As engineering practices continue to evolve, ANSYS, Inc. offers colleges and universities the opportunity to teach a solution-based approach to computer-aided engineering. But now, even more importantly, students need to learn a process management approach to engineering that will help future employers remain competitive and innovative.
ANSYS believes students are best supported in their quest for a practical, quality education when they are offered a curriculum that combines traditional theory with the latest innovations in modern engineering techniques, including CAD/CAM and CAE. To help colleges, universities and other institutions of higher learning facilitate these types of courses, ANSYS offers the ANSYS in Education Program.
Educational institutions can expand their curriculum beyond point-solution solving by including process management techniques and ways to shorten the development cycle as their students progress through the engineering curriculum. This process will better prepare graduating engineers for the demands of today's rugged and rigorous positions.
"There is a natural fit between ANSYS and educational institutions. We are all focused on positively impacting our future through technology and innovation," said Jim Cashman, president and CEO at ANSYS, Inc. "We're excited that we play a role in building a generation of engineers that will help revolutionize the way products are designed and built."
By combining traditional instruction with practical demonstrations and classroom exercises using the many available ANSYS applications, students gain incomparable levels of aptitude and confidence that can unlock the door to their engineering future in today's highly competitive world. Nothing opens that door faster than hands-on experience with the possible exception of public recognition and awards for a job well done.
To further support engineering education, ANSYS sponsors the annual College Design Engineering Award competition. This annual event offers engineering students or student teams the opportunity to share their classroom design projects and success stories in a public forum with not only their peers, but also the global engineering community.
ANSYS, Inc. awards a $20,000 cash prize distributed evenly between the winning team and institution. Plus, the winners are invited to present their project to industry professionals at the Design News Engineering Awards banquet.
The CDEA unlocks the door to the future of engineering by combining traditional instruction with practical demonstrations to prepare students for the road ahead. ANSYS is proud to support this competition and the evolving needs of engineering education.
