Ansys and Cornell University’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering are jointly offering new simulation-based online courses. The collaboration is focused on remote learning and brings simulation software to the forefront of teaching.

Cornell and Ansys are arming graduating engineers and young professionals with access to simulation education, the organizations say. Through this collaboration with Cornell, Ansys helps equip a new era of engineers to succeed within advanced engineering teams.

Cornell will design and develop courses while Ansys provides support for the inclusion of real-world application examples and detailed technical write-ups of problem formulations, engineering assumptions, simulation approaches and results interpretation. The courses’ format enables participants to complete the curricula on their own timelines.

Courses will be offered for students and professionals seeking to bolster their skillsets. Cornell has chosen the Ansys Innovation Courses platform to host their existing SimCafe tutorials. Cornell will work closely with Ansys to migrate all of their tutorials to the Innovation Courses learning structure, resulting in more than 50 new Cornell courses, adding to the more than 75 existing Ansys Innovation courses.

“Simulation is a disruptive technology that can be used to transform engineering curriculum at the university level,” says Rajesh Bhaskaran, Swanson director of engineering simulation at Cornell University’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. “As simulation becomes a standard for teaching physics, nearly every engineering graduate should be able to use simulation software effectively.”

“Through our continued collaboration with Cornell University, we are helping students and professionals engineer what’s ahead throughout every stage of their career,” said Prith Banerjee, chief technology officer at Ansys. “As simulation continues to revolutionize how engineering is done, the eCornell courses, supplemented by our Ansys Innovation Courses, will ensure that participants gain the experience needed to excel in the ever-changing industry.”

The Cornell courses are now open for registration. To learn more or to sign up, click here. Ansys Innovation Courses are available here.
