Ansys best practice and advice for academic users
CADFEM advisory services for universities and the research sector
We consolidate our commitment to research and teaching under the CADFEM motto “simulation is more than software” in the CADFEM Academic initiative – a central contact point for lecturers, PhD candidates, students and researchers. In addition to personal contact, we also offer events specifically tailored to research and teaching needs.
Workshops for lecturers and instructors
The task of designing an introductory practical course for FEM or CFD is similar at every university.
That is why CADFEM workshops for lecturers save you time when preparing teaching materials and updating content.
You can focus on the physical/technical aspects of teaching
Students work with current software for 3D simulation
Prepared tutorials can be quickly and easily expanded
Summer school for PhD candidates
PhD students deepen their knowledge of the simulation of electromagnetic and coupled phenomena at the University of Wuppertal. Since 2008, the annual event of the University of Wuppertal and CADFEM has been very popular in professional circles.
Potential formulation for electromagnetic fields and system models
Realization of field problems as well as field and system coupling in Ansys
Presentation and technical discussion of the research topics of all participants
CADFEM sponsorship for student teams
All student teams sponsored by CADFEM benefit from a comprehensive Ansys license package and additional CADFEM support, such as practical tips, technical support, Ansys training and a second opinion on their analysis plan.
Feedback on analysis plan
Second opinion and practical tips on the analysis plan to ensure a successful start
FS simulation workshop

What university customers are saying
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wilhelm Rust
Professor of Simulation in Mechanical Engineering, Hanover University of Applied Sciences
ANSYS offers the possibility of subsequent parameterization of CAD geometries and control variables. In the ‘Structural mechanics: basic examples with ANSYS Workbench’ lecturer workshop, I show tasks and sample solutions with which we carry out parametric studies and mathematical optimization in teaching.
Development engineer, Siemens AG
The Electromagnetic Simulation summer school is the perfect way for PhD candidates to learn how to use ANSYS software at a high level based on collaborative case studies. The discussion of different simulation approaches and methods for my dissertation topic with Dr. Hanke and other doctoral students was invaluable to me.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Binder
Program director for Mechanical Engineering, Ingolstadt University of Applied Sciences
At the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt, every student can learn how to use Ansys. We have very good experience with this in teaching as well as the technical support from CADFEM and are happy to recommend subsequent specialization courses.
The right solutions for your simulation projects
Simulation is everywhere and affects every industry. Since simulation requires more than software, CADFEM offers everything you need for successful simulation from a single source: software and IT solutions, consulting, support, engineering and knowledge sharing – always on the cutting edge.
