UPDATE With the rapidly evolving social-distancing requirements, we have unfortunately  made the decision to postpone this course. This precaution has been taken to ensure the health and well-being of you, our staff and the wider community; we trust you understand. If you have already enrolled in this course, we will be in touch shortly.

Are you about to embark on an engineering career, or perhaps you need to up skill with some of the latest and best software; if so, then this training is for you. 

An introductory course intended for engineers who are new to, or have an intermediate level of knowledge of simulation. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basics and fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis and learn how to prepare CAD geometry to be ready for simulation & meshing, define loads & boundary conditions, apply correct physics and how to interpret & validate your results using best practices.

A series of lectures, demonstrations and brief hands-on workshops in ANSYS will offer the opportunity to apply these simulation techniques to a range of applications involving linear and non-linear structural mechanics and thermal analysis (along with an overview of other more advanced physics) and examples of new simulation capabilities such as generative design, composites modelling and additive manufacturing.

A technical education and background is recommended but an engineering degree is not a prerequisite.


  • Geometry prep for FEA              
  • Linear Analysis
  • Thermal Analysis  
  • Non-linear Analysis.
You may not need to be a Simulation Expert but all engineers need to understand simulations, what it is, how it can help you and more importantly how to use it. So why not make yourself more employable and valuable to your employer by learning something new.
