AOC 2021

The rapid growth and interplay of various technologies in recent times have made the world increasingly complex. This demands Engineers of tomorrow not only be experts in their chosen domain but also have adequate knowledge of other engineering disciplines to collaborate and build the products of tomorrow. Often times this implies building multi-disciplinary skills to solve multi-physics problems. Altair brings AOC 2021 with the aim to address this specific need of the industry. Participating in AOC 2021 will give you an opportunity to understand and solve problems from other engineering streams and help build cross-disciplinary skills making you “Jack of All and Master of One”.
