Best practices for simulation with Ansys at the university

Instructor workshops at CADFEM provide insights into practical fields of application in product development, structural mechanics, electromagnetics and system simulation.

FEM and CFD simulation in teaching: scientific, modern and interesting

Is it important to you to teach scientific fundamentals in an understandable way? Do your students want to gain relevant practical experience for their future careers? Many professors and instructors work effectively with Ansys and share their experience.

Instructor workshops give you time for what's important

The task of designing an introductory practical course is similar at every university. Therefore, the exchange with other lecturers can save you a lot of time when preparing teaching materials and new content.


  • Prepared tutorials can be quickly and easily expanded
  • Students work with current software for 3D simulation
  • Five subject fields cover all teaching fields
  • Focus on physical/technical aspects of teaching
  • Typical problems are provided with sample solutions
  • > 400 participants have attended the workshops since 2011
  • Complement software trainings to get to know the latest technology
