Distance Learning and Professional Development

SIMCenter offers fully online professional development opportunities which provide integrated workforce development for working engineers.

As industry moves toward virtual development processes, proficiency withcomputer aided engineering (CAE) tools is essential. However, most formal classes in CAE at the university level are offered as senior tech electives and are limited to an introduction to these tools. Graduate-level courses provide students with an in-depth understanding, but they do not always meet the needs of engineers already in the workforce. Similarly, software supplier training classes help increase software interface competencies, but they often do not address the technical foundation.

SIMCenter's focus on applied learning helps the engineer approach CAE software as a problem solver. Our close ties with industry ensure the programs' content is regularly updated to meet new industry standards.
