Undergraduate Students

SIMCenter is dedicated to promoting student competency in the use of computer-aided engineering software to solve complex, real-world problems. Affiliation with SIMCenter opens doors and provides the knowledge and skills needed for graduate school and beyond.

We hire undergraduates directly, facilitate on-site and off-site internships with Honda R&D Americas, and coordinate internships with many other companies. Students who wish to access SIMCenter’s software for use in academic projects should make a request through their instructor or advisor.

Students interested in computational techniques, like simulation, can minor in Computational Science and Engineering through the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
