Students around the world now have free access to the same leading engineering simulation solutions used by top organizations and professional engineers to create the most advanced products on the planet, thanks to ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS).
Released today, ANSYS® Student is a free, introductory academic software package for students interested in learning the fundamentals of simulation while gaining exposure to the state-of-the-art ANSYS simulation workflows, pre-processing, post-processing and solver solutions. Students can tackle a broad scope of mechanics and fluids simulations, from fundamental tutorial level models to complex real-world scale models.
“At Cornell University, we use ANSYS software in a dozen courses in mechanical and aerospace engineering to expose students to finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics simulations. Our students find it convenient to have the software on their computers to complete homework and projects,” said Rajesh Bhaskaran, Swanson director of engineering at Cornell University. “The free ANSYS Student product is a truly exciting development since it puts state-of-the-art simulation technology at students’ fingertips everywhere. This will enable them to solve real-world engineering models while also gaining fundamental physical insights. This means students will be much better prepared for the modern engineering workforce.”
In addition to the software, ANSYS is providing self-guided technical support, installation videos, FAQs and introductory tutorials, all available for use through the ANSYS website.
“We’re proud to equip next-generation engineers with ANSYS’ leading software technology, both inside and outside of the classroom,” said Mark Hindsbo, ANSYS’ vice president of marketing. “Investing in STEM education is critical for the global economy and we at ANSYS are passionate about doing what we can to enable the students of today to be the best possible engineers of tomorrow.”
