This course is targeted toward undergraduate students who are looking for a unique capstone course where they can apply their knowledge to an industry-sponsored project.


One of the most important aspects of CAE education is real-world experience. Through SIMCenter's capstone course, students can do just that.

SIMCenter's capstone course is a multi-disciplinary program in which students can apply their knowledge to real-world problems. This is achieved by allowing students to work on authentic industry-sponsored projects.

These industry-sponsored projects develop students' professional skills including critical thinking, communication and open-ended problem solving. Students also gain firsthand experience using industry-standard software. The projects, which familiarize students with the link between simulations and experiments, focus on:

  • Structural analysis
  • Systems modeling
  • Computational fluid dynamics
