We all know that the world we are living in is changing rapidly. Today, we have more scientists and engineers than we have ever had in our entire history. This intellectual revolution is leading to more discoveries and innovations than ever before. And in this revolution, the way we design products has changed tremendously. The Simulation-driven Design process - the home ground of Altair - is gaining acceptance and momentum in all industries. For instance, topology optimization (light-weight design) formerly considered to be something “fancy” and only available to and used by expert CAE analysts, has made its way to the designer's desk already. It is clear to see that technology driven innovation is evolving at a high pace. And the greatest challenge for the engineer of tomorrow is to keep up with the pace by learning constantly. We at Altair, (especially the Academic Team) are dedicated towards education and teaching to help you and your students to be successful. From your success, we derive ours and that understanding is the basis of our Academic Program, where we strive to provide students with the best resources and software to help them become the best engineers and designers that they can be. Let us come together and discuss how we can help you to build a better-engineered future.
